Tour de France champion Alberto Contador to race Tour of Missouri

Articles this week about Team Discovery Channel's future (which, unfortunately, is not good--the team will disband after this year's racing season) also highlighted the participation of team members, including Tour de France Champion Alberto Contador, 3rd place Tour de France finisher Levi Leipheimer, and favorite of America fans, George Hincapie in the upcoming Tour of Missouri.

According to the Washington Post article:
The team was a dominant force in cycling for nearly a decade.

Armstrong won the first of his record seven consecutive Tour de France titles in 1999 racing under the U.S. Postal Service banner. The team built cycling's top lineup as Armstrong and his lieutenants powered their way through France and maintained that dominance when Contador won the Tour and American teammate Levi Leipheimer finished third.
The New York times adds:
The Discovery Channel team, which is participating in the Tour of Germany, will finish out its schedule of races this year, including the Tour of Spain in September. The team, including Contador, Leipheimer, and George Hincapie, will ride in the inaugural Tour of Missouri Sept. 11-16.
