Spain's Alberto Contador said that he would pull out all the stops in the last week of the Vuelta a Espana to avoid losing the race to compatriot Joaquim Rodriguez, who leads by 28 seconds.

Contador explained during yesterday's rest day that it would be "complicated" to win, but he added: "I can't change myself, and one thing that never crosses my mind is not to go for the overall victory."

However, Contador said that the Vuelta's final-week route, which includes two summit finishes, was not ideal for his plans.
