    We have learned through a statement issued by his press service, that Alberto Contador no longer wishes to ride for the Astana team with whom he won two Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia and Tour Spain. For three years, the sponsor of Kazakhstan has offered him the best working conditions to enrich his record.
     
    Alberto Contador himself had desired before the start of the Tour de France to find quickly an agreement to extend his contract with Team Astana. Our proposal was superior to the contract he had so far but it should be ratified as soon as possible to arrange for future season in the best conditions. Alberto Contador had himself called for this condition to pass a more serene off season.
     
    By setting a dead line on July 25 evening of the arrival of the Tour de France and then extending it to 48 hours as he had requested, we thought we had complied with the wishes of Alberto Contador. We have never put any pressure, we have always acted according to his will.
     
    His decision to leave does not depend on us but on other outside proposals. We respect his choice, and wish him good luck.
