A two-time Tour de France winner going for his third in 2010, Contador is the race's favorite. He has won three races already this year: Tour of Algarve, Vuelta de Castilla and Leon and Paris-Nice. He will try to repeat without the support of former teammate Lance Armstrong, who bolted Astana last year to create his own team.
