    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.
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    First impressions are most often correct. Booster for the bloodstream, how sneaky?! Get back to eating grass you old goat!

    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.
    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!
