Alberto Contador hoping to hit top form to overhaul Sky at Tour de France

Alberto Contador, pre-Tour de France press conference

Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) is chasing form and Sky, with the Tour de France due to start in two day's time in Corsica.

"Es complicado," Contador explained in a press conference this morning. "At the Dauphiné, I was more or less at 75 per cent. Now, it's difficult to say at what level I'm at, but more or less, I'd say that I am at 90 per cent, which was my objective at the start of the Tour given how the parcours is this year."
