Alberto Contador plans to show an improvement in form at the Tour of Murcia starting today, following his fourth place at last month's Tour of Algarve on his return from a doping ban.

"I did good training in Majorca," said Contador, who was cleared of wrongdoing by the Spanish Cycling Federation last month. "I tried to recover from the effort of the Algarve and hope I'll go a little better every day."
