Cav Third in Times Online Poll

He may be fifth in the betting, but the chances of Manx cyclist Mark Cavendish winning the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award seem to be improving.

A Times Online poll has the Manx Missile third behind Ryan Giggs and leader Jenson Button.

The winner will be decided by a telephone vote during the live show from Sheffield on Sunday evening - a number for each of the ten contenders will be given at the start of the programme.
