Re: 2009 Tour De France
The problem for Contador is apparently his entire team wants to chuck him under a bus. As far as I gather, the team was pretty much unified in its dislike of Contador. I remember reading that Leipheimer, who did a massive amount of work for Contador in the 2007 TDF, wasn't too fond of the kid either. Putting Kloden to the sword seemed to be the final straw.
It will be interesting to see where Contador lands. The new team being formed by F1 driver Fernando Alonso wasn't supposed to be ready until 2011, but they may push it up a year to lock in Contador. Who gets involved beyond him and who wants to work for him remain open questions.
