Alberto Contador (Astana) attacked but couldn't get a gap
Defending champion keen to retain title
Alberto Contador is looking to stamp his authority on the Tour de France for a third time in 2010. The Spanish rider is keen to do his talking on the road once more against former teammate Lance Armstrong, after a war of words erupted between the pair at the end of last season.
Contador has claimed the last two Tours he’s started and with Armstrong now on a rival team and in his last year as a professional, he would like nothing more than to deny the Radioshack rider an eighth title.
It won’t be easy for Contador however, as the race features a tough route and there’s more than Armstrong to worry about in the general classification standings.
