Irfaan Johnson and Malcolm Botes were given special awards for their achievements on the track in 2015, while Mike van Jaarsveld was awarded the dubious honour of “D*ckhead of the Year” for pranging his bike, fixing and respraying it, and then really pranging it and himself, putting himself out of contention for the rest of the season.
