Alberto Contador Velasco, born 6 December 1982, Madrid, is undoubtedly one of the world’s best stage racers and a legend in his own lifetime. With seven Grand Tour GC victories – more than any other active rider – along with numerous wins in stage races, Alberto has a claim to being the finest overall cyclist of this generation. “El Pistolero”, a nickname given for his signature celebration move, has won two Tours de France (2007, 2009), two Giro d’Italia (2008, 2015), and the Vuelta a España three times: 2008, 2012 and 2014.
