Contador announces Vuelta a Espaņa 2017 will be his final race
Multiple Grand Tour winner, Alberto Contador, has announced through a video in his social networks that the next Vuelta a España will be his last race as a professional cyclist.
In the recording, the leader of Trek-Segafredo Team explains that he has meditated very well this decision and believes that the Tour of Spain is the best possible scenario to say goodbye to cycling and to all of his fans in the way they deserve.
Luca Guercilena, General Manager Trek-Segafredo: "It has been an honor to work with such a great champion. Alberto Contador has been showing his fighting spirit and his professionalism all year long. To give you one example, in this year's Tour de France he demonstrated his personal motto in a way we only could admire: 'Where there's a will, there's a way.' Even after the crashes that took him out of the fight for the first places in GC, he kept fighting and battling for a stage win and to move up some places in GC. That showed how strong he is, both mentally and physically."
"It was great to have him in the team, even it was only for one season, and we will keep giving it our all to help him to achieve a big result in his last Vuelta a Espaņa and it goes without saying we wish him the very best for his future afterwards!"
