After Cyclingnews reported on the wind tunnel tests of Lance Armstrong last week, it seems like the Texan isn't the only one looking to gain some aero advantages for his 2009 season.

His teammate next year, Alberto Contador, has also been in the United States testing in a wind tunnel and analysing his time trial position. Sporza reports that the prodigiously talented Spaniard was happy after the sessions in San Diego. "I have more to get out of my body," he explained.

The winner of this year's Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España built his victories around strong performances in mountain stages and time trials, and said that, "You need to be at the top in both the mountains and the time trial to win a Grand Tour. Small advantages may also decide whether you lose or win."
