Iban Mayo

Iban Mayo has announced he will ride for Saunier Duval for the next two years after falling out with the Euskaltel team. Mayo and Saunier Duval announced the deal on Monday in a press conference after he refused to stay with Euskaltel because of new internal ethics code in the Basque team.

?I?m changing team with the intention of improving as a rider and my 2003 season is my reference point,? Mayo said, remembering when he won the Tour of the Basque Country, two stages in the Dauphine Libere and the L?Alpe d?Huez stage of the Tour de France.
