Oscar Pereiro, winner of the 2006 Tour de France, says that he will be racing with Astana in 2010. There is no official word yet, but he has told Radio Galega that “I’ve signed for one year. It’s going to be an important team.” Pereiro had a crash in 2008 that made his 2009 season rough, and he had to pull out of the Tour de France in the first week. Pereiro says that he considered an offer from QuickStep, but instead chose to go with Astana in hopes of riding with two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador.
