Lance could be an ally: Contador


Seven-times Tour winner Armstrong has formed a new team, RadioShack, for next season while Spaniard Contador will remain with Kazakh-funded Astana in 2010, despite threatening to leave and opening negotiations with several other leading teams.
Contador and Armstrong clashed over the role of team leader at Astana during this year's Tour de France. However, Contador said on Friday he had put their differences behind him.

"I want to think about sport, I'm not interested in he polemics. For me 2009 is finished. Now I want to think about training for my own goals," Contador, in Italy for an Astana training camp, told a news conference.
"Things were difficult during the Tour de France and it was very stressful but it was also good experience for the future. I matured a lot and learnt to stay cool. It's possible that I could be friends or an ally with Lance in the future. In sport you can never say never."
