Ladies and gentlemen, Alberto Contador is back in a Grand Tour in less than 24 hours. The 2 or 3 time Tour champ has won a Vuelta before and will look to take a title in his return to racing. His own team boss, Bjarne Riis, has said that the Spaniard’s Vuelta campaign is a must-win. “El Pistolero” will take on Robert Gesink, Chris Froome and Juan Jose Cobo in his race for redemption, in addition to a number of dark horses capable of surprising.

Would you bet against him?
