Contador makes bold Grand Tour claims
Alberto Contador, who finished his career after the Vuelta a España last month, believes that he could have become the first rider to win all three Grand Tours in one season.
No cyclist has ever won the Giro d’italia, Tour de France and the Vuelta in a year.
“I would have liked, like anyone else, to have won all three Grand Tours in one year,” Contador told Spain’s Marca newspaper.
“I’ve been able to win them, but in different seasons. If I had tried it when I was younger and when I had a very powerful team around me, maybe I would have had more options.”
