Vuelta a Espana champion Alejandro Valverde is uncertain whether or not he will be defending his title in 2010, with hopes to race in the Tour de France instead. “The Tour is the race with more international prestige. We’ll see how the season develops. I always take on a race with the maximum guarantees of success. The road always puts everything in its place, but in principle, I will go with the challenge of hoping for everything.” However, Valverde may not even be racing at all come 2010, as Italian authorities think he may have been involved in Operacion Puerto, which dates back to 2006. Valverde couldn’t compete in the Tour this year because of his two-year ban from cycling in Italy, as the Tour includes 80km through Italian territory. The UCI and the World Anti-Doping Agency are trying to extend the ban to the…

On-One is known throughout the mountain biking industry for their steel and titanium frames, but the company just dropped the bomb that in 2010 they will have their first carbon fiber frame.

The first frame to receive carbon treatment is the 456, an ideal mountain bike for UK conditions, and the first sample will arrive in December 100% built from the ground up.

By now, we all know of the huge story of whether or not two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador will stay with his current team Astana, and if not, where will he go if he does leave. Well, it has been made clear that Contador will be staying at least another year with Astana, and now he speaks publicly about it for the first time. “I am happy with the solution because it was time to clarify my future. I had already arrived at a preliminary agreement with the team and everything was dependent on the (ProTour) license. In the end, just as we hoped, I will stay with Astana,” says Contador. “I believe we’re going to have a good team, perhaps not as potent, above all in terms of name, but I am fully confident in the work we will do and the big…

Oscar Pereiro has recently gave an explanation behind his move to Astana for the 2010 season. The Spaniard basically said that he didn’t want to end his career in a “feed zone.” I don’t think that a rider who has won the Tour de France should retire in a feed zone but should find some other way of doing so.That’s why I’ve decided to take up the chance to ride for another year and quit when the time is right,” Pereiro tells the Galician newspaper El Progreso. He said that he committed to Astana two weeks ago, but was waiting to make it public until it was decided that Alberto Contador was staying with the team. “I’m not a rider who is going to be a candidate to win the Tour year after year. I am one of the best riders in the race as…
