Well you will have to ask management cause they have awarded it to me. And as the first person to pick up the award I guess it means that my contribution around here is recognized over and above. Don't worry though, I'm sure you are somewhere in the queue, and will get your time to shine.
Just wondering where such things spring from and why the awards for the actual TCC Hill climb/sprint etc awards never came about, i meant hose are actually cycling related right? (I know this has nothing to do with you so this is aimed more at the admin)
Well, it seems like these awards are TCC organized awards that recognize service to TCC and its members or being good enough to win something. So I guess they are as official as you can get? I'm not sure but after my thousands of helpful posts to people, I feel this is a just reward for my service, and i dedicate it to the memory of my grandma, who used to ride around with me on her bike when I was little.
