There was news all over the internet that the Spaniard cyclist Alberto Contador might sign to ride in the US registered team Trek Segafredo team in 2017.
Now, the rumors have come true as Alberto has indeed put pen to paper and signed the deal with Trek Segafredo.
The brother and agent of Alberto Contador have said that the Tour De France cyclist has signed the dotted line after agreeing to the final terms. The deal with Trek Segafredo was signed in Andorra. The agreement says that Contador will be part of the team for the next two years and the second year will be an optional one for both the sides.
Alberto, the 33 year old rider, is expected to rope in two more riders to the Trek Segafredo team and there is every chance for Jesus Hernandez to be part of the team. The Dutch rider is currently in the top ten of the Tour De France season race and will be participating as Contador’s teammate for Trek Segafredo. The team is also looking to sign John Degenkolb for 2017.
