Mayo Returns

Basque climbing sensation turned absentee Iban Mayo today brought his new Sauneir-Duval colors across the rain soaked finish line in the last mountain stage of this year's Giro de Italia.

Showing the form that a few years ago made him one of the most feared ascenders in the peloton, Mayo pedaled away from a select breakaway group, motored up the hill, and absolutely flew down the other side, risking all in a heroic bid for victory.

He managed to keep the rubber side down for the duration, and his celebration said it all. Good to see Mayo back again.
