Alberto Contador (Astana), who left the Vuelta a Burgos due to health problems, has assured his team that he is fully fit and wants to return to competition as soon as possible.

The Astana director, Herminio Díaz Zabala, said on TVE, "I have phoned [Contador] this morning, and he has assured me that he is ready to return to competition as soon as possible, but we have to take into account that he has had a long time without training and competing."

The next race in which Astana will take part is the Poland Tour, and "Contador wants to convince us that he should be there," said Diaz Zabala.
