Alberto Contador says he's moved on from his dispute with Lance Armstrong over team leadership during the Tour de France, Reuters reports. "I want to think about sport. I'm not interestedin the polemics. For me 2009 is finished. Now I want to think abouttraining for my own goals," said Contador. "Things were difficult during the Tour de France and it was verystressful, but it was also good experience for the future. I matured alot and learned 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." Contador, who is still with Astana, is in a team training camp in Italy. Armstrong has formed Team RadioShack for next season.
