Renowned as a climber, Mayo turned pro with the Euskaltel-Euskadi team in 2000, and has become one of the Basque Country's top prospects for future cycling glory. He stayed with Euskaltel-Euskadi throughout 2000-2006, further increasing his support among the Basque fans. The biggest result of Mayo's career thus far came in the 2003 Tour de France, when he won a resounding stage victory up the famous Alpe d'Huez. He eventually finished the Tour in sixth place overall.

In 2004 he impressed everyone with a victory in the Dauphiné Libéré, which is generally regarded as a preparation course for the Tour de France. In one of the stages he managed to beat Lance Armstrong by 2 minutes in a time trial on the Mont Ventoux, also breaking the previous record for the legendary climb. Therefore he was seen as a dangerous outsider for the Tour de France in the same year. It turned out to be a disappointment. After losing a lot of time in the north on the cobblestones due to a crash, he lost even more in the Pyrenees due to his sustained injuries, and reportedly mononucleosis infection. He quit the race before the start of the 15th stage. Many observers felt that Mayo had taken on too much and had reached his top form too early in the season.

He was seen as a possible contender for the title in the 2006 Tour de France, but retired from the race during the 11th stage.

Mayo crashed in a dash by the main pack of riders to be first onto the dangerous bumps, and he couldn't make up the lost time even though he resumed racing in torn shorts.
The 26-year-old Mayo is a fearsome climber and could regain time in the Pyrenees and Alps later in the three-week showcase race.
Mayo risks falling further behind today, in a team time trial where his squad is expected to struggle.
