Contador on the Muur at the Eneco tour will be quite a site, I can see him dominating the end of season, doing the worlds will also be really good to see

He confirms Eneco & Vuelta, hints that this will happen in Saxobank colours and hopes for the worlds...

Something interesting in that interview is that the journalist ask him about an 8 million dollars offer and 4 years and he didn't deny.

Is there a more complete version of the article, because I didn't see any mention of the 8 million dollar offer or the 4 years.

"I'm working on it [contract negotiations - ed.]. There were six interested teams, amongst them Movistar. But without a doubt, my priority is the Saxo Bank team, who gave me their unconditional support through these difficult times, and that's something that money can't buy. There are things you need to honour and they are priceless."

Prue Class both on and off the bike!

What if Saxo can't keep their world tour licence, will Contador still stick with them? I suppose with him on the squad you're pretty sure you're going to get invites for the major events, but it's not certain. The soap opera continues...
