Contador returns to racing at GP Plouay

After taking a break from competition of slightly more than one month following a 4th place result at the Tour de France, Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) will return to competition this coming Sunday at the GP Plouay. The 30-year-old Spaniard hopes to return to peak form for the world championships and Il Lombardia and has defied convention by skipping the Vuelta a Espana, which he won in 2012, and has instead opted for hard training and one-day races to hone his condition.
