sneaking back in

check out the results of stage 2 [criterium du dauphine libere] today, one of my favorite 'animators' seems to be making a good come back this year after a [2] really bad, uncharacteristic years. i'm talking of course of that basque sensation iban mayo. i know i am supporting the underdog cadel evans this year for TDF, but i think this is going to be the tour of the unexpected, and iban could certainly be that person if he is on is game, and of course learns to time trial.
