Tom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb has won the Dutch Male Athlete of the Year award. The cyclist defeated Formula 1 star Max Verstappen and speedskater Sven Kramer.

The 'Maastricht Butterfly' wins the award for his performance in the Giro d'Italia, which he won ahead of Nairo Quintana and Vincenzo Nibali, as well as his Gold medal at the Individual Time Trial of the World Championships in Bergen, Norway.

Dumoulin is the first cyclist to win the prestigious award since Danny Nelissen in 1995. Other cyclists to have won the trophy include Erik Breukink, Joop Zoetemelk, Gerrie Knetemann and Jan Janssen.

Dylan Groenewegen and Bauke Mollema also appeared on the long-list of nominees for this year's edition.
