Cipo unretires ... again

BBC SPORT | Cipollini puts retirement on hold

On second thought, says Super Mario, I don't like golf and I wouldn't get nearly the attention I get riding, so I'll be back next year.

Cipollini signed with Italy's Liquigas Sport, where he'll join TDFBlog favorite Magnus Backstedt, Stefano Garzelli, and Danilo Di Luca.

The 37-year old, who holds the record for the most number of Giro d'Italia stage wins with 42, retired two years ago before making a comeback.

Cipollini has also won 12 stages of the Tour, but has been plagued by injury over the past year.

"[I will ride] with the enthusiasm as if it were my first season," said the rider also known as "Super Mario".
