Alberto Contador and Bjarne Riis, Saxo Bank, Tour de France 2011 press conference

Alberto Contador has renewed his contract with Danish WorldTour squad Saxo Bank for a further three years, until the end of the 2015 season.

Saxo Bank confirmed that Contador will resume racing with the team when the Spaniard's current ban for failing a test for clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour de France expires on August 5. In recent weeks, rumours have been rife that the 29-year-old may sign for a rival team.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
