Winter Games Medals: Reader-Voted Picks for Best Handling Car, Best Cruising Vehicle, & Much More!

The Winter Games are over.

The flame has been extinguished, and Bob Costas’ eyes are all cleared up. But the OnAllCylinders Winter Games—the competition that asked you to pick gold medal winners in seven distinct automotive categories—still has some unfinished business.

We have to award our medals.

We opted to announce our winners after the Sochi closing ceremonies out of respect for the Russian women’s curling team and other athletes. And because we didn’t want to steal the world’s spotlight.

You’re welcome, NBC.
