Alberto Contador, who arrived in Bormio today to take part in the RHxDue, a popular cycling climb to Gavia and Mortirolo, announced during the presentation of this event his intention to do the next Giro d’Italia, failing to close some details, especially know the route of the race, which will be presented after the Tour of Lombardy.
“Since we’re here in Bormio, at the foot of legendary mountain passes like Gavia, Mortirolo and Stelvio, that I have enjoyed and suffered in the Tour of Italy, and awaiting for some details such as the route of the race, I have already spoken to Bjarne Riis and my coach and we have decided that my first goal of 2015 will be the Giro d’Italia”, said Alberto Contador at the press conference organized by Zero RH +, the provider of competition sunglasses both for Tinkoff-Saxo and teams of Alberto Contador Foundation.
Alberto Contador also said today that its 2015 plan passes first by the Giro d’Italia, but also, “since it is the most important race on the calendar, by the Tour de France if everything goes smoothly throughout the season”. Alberto explained that he has taken this decision to “take on a new challenge and have a new motivation”.
The leader of Tinkoff-Saxo finished explaining that this challenge raises “more like a Giro-Tour double that an attempt to make the big three in the same year, which is not in my plans at the moment”, he concluded.
