Default Will Contador retire early next year....?

After such a terrible performance in this years TDF I am beginning to wonder if Contador will retire at the end of this year or early next year and skip the TDF....? I think it's highly doubtful that AC will ride the Vuelta this year. Personally I think he should try and win the Worlds or the Tour of Lombardy again.

Probably not fully recovered from the Giro.

Retire? I think not, but time will tell.

Contador announced today that he intends to ride the 2016 TDF. Without stronger climbers next year Contador will have hard time winning next year. I was bit surprised that he committed to riding the TDF again so soon.

Certainly Tinkov-Saxobank will reevaluate team leadership after this years TDF. It quite possible that they will have co-leadership untill AC retires.
