Alberto Contador has vowed to retire from cycling on the back of winning another Tour de France title in 2018.
The Spaniard, who turned 32 on December 6, says that he will call time on his career at the age of 35, but hopes to leave the sport after claiming another La Grande Boucle win, having not won it since 2007.
"Winning my last ever race. I don't refer to a small stage race, either, but winning a big one. To be specific, the Tour de France," he told Marca.
"I'm in great shape, this year has been the best of my career.
""But the years are going by and although I may not be exhausted mentally or physically, my aim to is to retire at the highest level and winning my last ever race."
Contador, who has won the Vuelta a Espana, Tour of the Basque Country and Tirreno–Adriatico this year, is out of contract with his current team Tinkoff-Saxo next year.
