Just found this news story - doesnt know when to give up does he!?

Friday 15th February 2008 - Stephen Farrand

Mario Cipollini is on a plane and heading to California after apparently sorting out his licence and contract with the Rock Racing team just 48 hours before the start of the Tour of California.

Cipollini has always refused to confirm he would make his much trumpeted return to racing at the Tour of California but Cycling Weekly understands that almost all of the licence and contract problems have been resolved and so Cipollini jumped on a plane early on Friday morning that will see him arrive in Palo Alto near San Francisco just two days before Sunday's 3.4km prologue.

The late departure will mean Cipollini will have little time to get over jet lag and the long trip will surely leave him struggling in the prologue. Cipollini will be 41 on March 22 and has not raced since Milan-San Remo in 2005, but if the reports that he has been training hard all winter are true, he could even pull off a surprise in the first road stage to Santa Rosa on Monday.
