Climbing back to the top

I'd love to see him back!

Juan Mauricio Soler is back in the news, returning to Colombia after a long recovery from that near fatal crash during the summer's Tour de Suisse.

Before his crash on June 16, it seemed the former 2007 KOMs Tour de France winner had shaken off his long history of injuries and illnesses by winning stage 2 Crans-Montana on June 12. Of course, his road to recovery will be a daunting one full of challenges, but I remain hopefully optimistic.

But, seeing him in the video was enough to put a smile on my face. He's come far and headed, I hope, back to what he was ...a great climber!

Return to Colombia.
