Contador creates history....

....and becomes only the 5th man, and first Spaniard, to win all 3 grand tours. ... 2&tabid=90

If Astana are welcomed back to the tour next year he will be extremely hard to beat, LA or not.

His definately the best GT rider around at the moment, the question is who will he ride for next season?

Alberto Contador

"I think I've earned the right to be the leader of a team without having to fight for my place," Contador told AS. "And with Armstrong some difficult situations could arise in which the team would put him first and that would hurt me."

If LA does sign with Astana which we should know by the end of today i think we will see Bertie going over to Caisse d'Epargne they dont have a GT rider, Valverde has had his shot, and his the best spanish rider at the moment. Maybe the russian mob Katusha seeing as they probably have the money to by out his contract.

Hopefully lance will come back as a 'super-domestique' and let Contador lead, i mean, the guy won 7 tours for chris-sakes! As my mum would say 'let someone else have a go!'

Don't know if the LA ego will allow this though, time will tell.
