From VeloNation: As the year heads towards an end, Tour de France champion Alberto Contador has been reflecting on the 2009 season and looking ahead to 2010. It was a tough year for the Spaniard, but also a very rewarding one; he won his second Tour de France, of course, and thus his fourth Grand Tour, but also showed strongly in other races.

Proving he is a rider who can perform well from the start of the season, he collected a stage and the overall victory in the Volta ao Algarve, two stages in Paris-Nice, two stages and the general classification in the Vuelta al País Vasco, third in the Dauphiné Libéré, and finished the year as the number one in the UCI’s world ranking.

“It will be hard to match…I not only won the Tour, which was my goal, but I also was battling in every race in which I participated and got very good results,” the 27 year old told the Spanish newspaper AS. “This earned me the Velo d’Or and the UCI number one ranking. You can not ask for more. I think it was the best season of my career. And also the most difficult.”
