Bjarne Riis expects to connect Alberto Contador to a deal in next few weeks. The Spanish player was freed from his deal with Riis Cycling as well as Saxo Bank following the Court of Arbitration for Sport tralatitious a 2-year ban before this year for the positive examination for clenbuterol at Tour de France 2010. Alberto Contador had signed up for Riis for the beginning of 2011 season but because to his prohibition cannot come back to cycling till the month of August, when the rider will aim both Vuelta a España as well as Worlds.
Still, recent speculation has connected Contador with several teams, including Movistar, RadioShack, Astana as well as the brand new Spanish team. Along with the present sponsorship of Saxo Bank that is about to end at the end of this year, Riis tells that they are eager to devote to future – Alberto’s signature might be the central to the continuance of any Saxo Bank and Riis’ relationship.
While speaking to media, Riis told that when he has something firm to say then he is going to deal with it. At present they are working on it and of course he wants Contador to be with the team and both the sides want that. He also added that Contador has not told that he would sign for Riis, because as far as he thinks and also the UCI rules say that they have to follow on what they can do. Expectedly, he will have something very soon but he is looking around.
