Team RadioShack to Take Team Approach at 2010 Tour de France Behind Lance Armstrong

Team boss Johan Bruyneel hopes trio of top riders will stop two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador.

de France," Bruyneel told reporters earlier this month at the Tour of Switzerland. "Anything can happen and we have a strong team. With three guys who have finished on the podium, I hope that we can give a tough challenge to Alberto."

Contador will also have a strong team and can count on the experience of Vinokourov, who is coming back to the Tour after serving a two-year ban for blood doping.

Bruyneel also said that a very open race, with the Schleck brothers, Cadel Evans and Ivan Basso also bidding for victory, would make things easier for his riders.

"The more candidates for the victory they are, the better it is for us," Bruyneel said. "Hopefully we can have a strategic race and take advantage of it. This is our goal."
