Props to Mayo

Was I the only one saying Mayo-nays? I had this guy out to pasture and here he is capable of taking yellow if he TTs and climbs the Ps well. Was I wrong! Gotta love the comeback!

I wrote him off before the start of the tour, but am really impressed by his impressive so far!

Good luck to him in the mountains and TTs.

I think Velonews reported he admitted he can't win because of TT's but is gunning for a stage win.

That's a shame. I always thought he was good rider and loved it when he rode for Euskatel. The Basque fans would always go rabid on the Pyrenees stages when he passed by. Still, if he's doping he should be punished.
