Alberto Contador won his third Vuelta a España at the end of the 2014 season, just two months after crashing out of the Tour de France with a fractured tibia. The Spaniard beat an ever improving Chris Froome as the Sky rider failed to shake him off in the mountains.

The 2015 season has started well for Contador, with a dominant victory in the Giro d’Italia, before he aims to complete the Giro-Tour double in July.

The Tinkoff-Saxo rider has already stated that he will retire at the end of the 2016 season.

Contador was set to become one of the greatest Grand Tour riders of a generation with Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana wins, but then tested positive for Clenbuterol while on the 2010 Tour. The protracted case saw the Spaniard lose titles and have a question mark placed over the whole of his career.
