Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) finished the 19th stage of the Tour de France with a good mood, preparing for the time trial and for some objectives that will come soon. The rider also spoke about the chances for the favourites of the General Classification.

The Spaniard wants to ride a good time trial and he thinks that Rigoberto Uran can also give a good fight in the 20st stage of the race. "I think Uran is a rider that has accomplished a lot in time trials, He is where he is because he is very strong, and that speaks for him," said the rider to Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

"And it is not a technical time trial, but during the descent it has two or three curves in which you could fall and lose the Tour. So, evidently Froome is the favourite, but I think Uran will ride an extraordinary time trial."

Contador stated that he will try his best at the time trial, also for the things that are coming. "I will try my best for the sponsors, for the fans and for myself. Because maybe I have objectives in a short amount of time for which I could use some hard work on the bike," he commented.

The 19th stage was not very animated for the fans or the riders, who also had to stand the strong weather. "Today was very hot, but we're also in that time of the year in which suddenly it gets cloudy and storms start. We have been lucky that the storm went away, but it must have been a very boring day for the viewers. I'm sure more than one took a nap today," he affirmed.

The rider doesn't want to talk about all the rumours for next season and tried to dodge any questions with one sentence: "You will soon know what I will do next year".
