MADRID (AP) Two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador says is he planning to retire from cycling in 2016.
Contador says ''next year will most likely be the last. ... I could change my mind if I have a mishap on the Tour like last year, for example, but little else could make me change.''
The 32-year-old Spaniard will start the season on Wednesday in the Vuelta a Andalucia, where he will compete against fellow former Tour winner Chris Froome.
Contador plans to ride in the Giro d'Italia and the Tour, but will skip this year's Spanish Vuelta.
He has won the Tour twice, the Vuelta three times and the Giro once.
