Manx cycling star Mark Cavendish has made the shortlist for the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year Award.

It's the second year in a row that Cav has made the final ten.

In 2010, Cavendish won five stages at the Tour de France, and became the first British rider to win the points competition in a grand tour since 1989, when he claimed the green jersey in the Tour of Spain.

Last year, Cav finished fourth, with Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs picking up the award.

This year he faces stiff competition from golfer Graeme McDowell, boxer David Haye, and Amy Williams who won a gold medal in the skeleton at the Winter Olympics.
