    Contador will ride in Tour of Missouri

    http://www.newstribune.com/articles/...ortsnews04.txt

    Contador will join Discovery Channel teammates Levi Leipheimer and George Hincapie in the event, to be held Sept. 11-16 throughout the state. Leipheimer was third in France.

    “We will have three riders from the top eight of the Tour de France, two being from the final podium, and I look forward to hosting the entire Discovery Channel team during their swan song on domestic soil,” said Jim Birrel, race director of the Tour of Missouri.

    Well, it's been known that Discovery was going to attend for certain, and perhaps even Contador was mentioned. However, after winning the TDF, perhaps he would've been given more flexibility on choosing what races he did/did not want to attend. I'm just speculating here.

    At any rate, I think if I was on the team, I'd want to attend their last race.
