As previously announced as breaking news first by Roadcycling.com on Tuesday, Spaniard will race for Team Sungard-Saxo Bank starting in 2011.
Tour de France champion Alberto Contador wants to compete in two of cycling's three major races in 2011, and says winning all three in one year is "not impossible."
Contador will join Team Sungard-Saxo Bank next year and says he still hasn't decided which races he will compete in. The Tour is sandwiched between the Giro d'Italia and Spanish Vuelta a Espana.
Contador is already one of only five riders to win all three during his career, and he says winning all three in one season is "only a dream, but it isn't impossible. Everyone has their dreams and this is mine."
The three-time Tour winner hopes to bring fellow Spanish riders Benjamin Noval, Daniel Navarro and Jesus Hernandez along with him to Team Saxo Bank-Sungard from Team Astana to strengthen his new team.
