Contador Not Seeing Armstrong as a Threat

A lot of hype is being built around the Criterium International which is going to be held this weekend at Corsica. Most of the hype revolves around Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador racing against each other in the event, which would be their first ever since last year’s Tour de France.

However, Contador is downplaying the challenge that his former Astana teammate supposedly presents, saying that many other riders are in much better shape than Armstrong as of the moment, and is instead acknowledging Cadel Evans to be a stronger threat.

Armstrong and Contador were not even supposed to meet each other in this weekend’s Criterium International. The two feuding cyclists were instead expected to race in the 2010 Tour de France, not before, but somehow Contador decided to drop his scheduled participation in the Tour of Catalunya to instead ride in the Criterium.

Contador has called Armstrong as “a rider…

There will be no racing for Team RadioShack and Lance Armstrong in this year’s edition of the Giro d’Italia, as organizers prepare to anounce the invited teams that will be seeing action in the 2010 Giro this coming May 8.

In the previous weeks prior to this event, Team RadioShack manager Johan Bruyneel had publicly expressed his hopes of getting an invitation for the team to join in the Giro this year. Lance Armstrong’s plans of racing in the Tour of California, however, may have played a role in failing to secure an invite from the organizers, since it would appear that the team was not particularly focusing its sights on the Giro hard enough.

Lance Armstrong’s deteriorating relationship with race director Angelo Zomegnan certainly did not help matters any. Zomegnan and Armstrong clashed when the American rider paticipated in the 2009 edition of the Giro d’Italia…

RCS Sport, organizers of the Milan-San Remo race, has confirmed that Lance Armstrong will be part of Team Radioshack’s list of participants for this Saturday’s event. The team will be joining the 200-rider peloton for the Italian Classic.

It is sort of a comeback for Armstrong. Giro d’Italia is another RCS Sport that he joined in 2009 to prepare himself for the Tour de France.

RCS Sport Director Angelo Zomegnan and Armstrong had an encounter on the ninth stage in 2009’s Giro. There was a peloton protest for that stage, claiming it was a dangerous circuit. Some riders claimed that Armstrong was behind the boycott and Zomegnan did not hide his displeasure over the “older riders” protesting with Armstrong.

Armstrong will not be joining the Giro d’Italia this year for he will be competing in the Tour of California. The latter will take effect on same month as with the Italian Grand Tour…
