Swiss cyclist and World Cup champion speed skier Philippe May has returned to San Diego a year after he was forced to pull out of the Race Across America when Scripps Health cardiologist John Rogers, MD, discovered he had a potentially deadly arrhythmia.

May told his story to a number of media outlets while he was in town preparing for the start of the cross-country cycling competition.
