RadioShack-Nissan-Trek boss Johan Bruyneel says that it's possible

As head of the newly-formed RadioShack-Nissan-Trek team, one of Johan Bruyneel's biggest tasks next season will be to stop Alberto Contador sweeping all before him. The 29-year-old Spaniard has won six Grand Tours already in his career and is widely recognised as the best rider of his generation.

If the CAS verdict on his doping ban goes in his favour, there is little doubt that Contador will use 2012 as a stage on which to remind the world of his supreme talent and to write himself into the sports pages for the right reasons again.
