It'd be great to see Contador in the Giro since the best riders will be there anyway.

I think that is about the wild cards, too.

Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank n'est pas encore certain de figurer en World Tour, ce qui ne garantit pas la présence de Contador sur le Tour 2013. Cette situation agace le Madrilène qui en a profité pour mettre en garde les organisateurs. "J'aimerais faire le Tour évidemment, je l'ai déjà raté cette année. Mais si je suis prévenu deux mois avant, je n'irai pas. Il me faut suffisamment de temps pour me préparer, le cas échéant, je ne serai pas de la partie".

I thought so too that's why I wasn't sure if it was about the wildcards.

problem is that I highly doubt Saxo would get a wild card for the Giro in January/February.

Alberto Contador said after his positive doppingtest -but before the judgment -
if he will get banned, he will abandon cycling............
so its just another "cry"
what the guy think abut himself???? threaten the ASO???
and of course it is an another lie......... he got a contract, he got bosses....

and dont worry Riis/Tinkoff already made the payment for the WT status IMO
