But he declared somewhere this year that he wanted to do the Tour de Suisse.Maybe he will clash with Wiggins and Porte on the Alto de Malhao next year in February.

WHy would Contador go for Lombardia? He was in a far better position for it this year and didnt really push it.

Personally I dont think he will do anything after the Tour. Tour Vuelta is possible but with Contador I think finishing the season in July is more likely

Also why would he do Amstel and not Liege?

Perhaps Contador would skip the Ardennes classics next year.

Doing Amstel is insane. Small roads, crazy stuff. Not many chances of winning either way.

San luis/Algerve/TA/Pais Vasco/FW/Dauphine/Tour and then I don't know...

I guess if feels good enough maybe vuelta but based on his history '07,'09,'10,'11 He always stops after riding the tour

Yea and if he wants to try something more next year (the giro/tour double or something) he can't use his autumn on racing classics, but to prepare and rest

He is not Purito the mountain sprinter or Gilbert a hilly classic specialist.He is the greatest stage racer now since his resurgence in 2007 Tour.
