I don't think he knows it yet, or I don't think he want to tell. I think it wouldn't be smart to announce in january before having raced one race that you're going to do the Tour and and a presumably incredibly hard Vuelta. He might even do the Giro.

I think he'll only go to the Vuelta if he doesn't do the Giro and he either crashes out in the Tour or he get's through the Tour with some mental and physical energy left.

No. The way he dodged the question on teledeportes im pretty sure he has no intention of doing it.

He should at least be at the start and target some stages, since 2013 is his best chance ever to become WC RR, depending if he wants to win it ofc.
Fiesole is perfect for climbers to make the difference and riding the Vuelta is a must for RR contenders on a heavy course.

Or is he already planning his usual two month break after his Tour victory?

Contador doesn't enter races on a wing and a prayer. He sits down before the season and plans everything. And he goes full out for all those things. I would love for contador to target worlds and think he is being stupid not.to but unfortunately 6 months off post July looks like the way it will go.

I hope Bertie has a nice build up for le Tour, skipping the Giro and if he feels he has enough left after it tries the Vuelta. He will Only ride the Vuelta to Win it so he has to feel he can!
