The 29-year old Spaniard Alberto Contador is focusing on the 2013 Giro d’Italia. Contador attended the course presentation of 2013 Giro few days back and there he expressed his wish to participate in the Italian Grand Tour in 2013.
Contador returned from a two year doping ban back in August and since then he looks promising as he won the Vuelta a Espana and the Milan-Turin race. The Saxo Bank-TinkOff Bank rider also said that his primary objective would be to win the Tour de France next year but he would like to take part in the Giro because he felt that the track is pretty good to ride.
Alberto Contador expressed his opinion that the Giro race would be a tough one right from the beginning because some of the toughest climbs are there at the start of the race. He thinks that the team time trial and the Mountain Time trial will make a crucial effect. He then adds on that the final week of the race will be a great one as it demands some of the toughest finishes.
Contador is quite sure that the Giro would suit him quite well. But he is not absolutely sure of participating in it because he doesn’t know his schedule for the next year. He chooses to wait and see his programs of the upcoming season and then he will decide whether to take part or not.
Alberto Contador has five Grand Tour titles in his bag which includes one Giro d’Italia in 2008, a couple of Vuelta a Espana in 2008 and 2012 and two Tour de France in 2007 and 2009. He is making the 2013 Tour de France his bird’s eye and desparately wants to win it.
