Madrid - Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador says his first race after serving a doping ban will be next month's Eneco Tour, where he will line up for Team Saxo Bank again.

Contador has been banned since February for a positive clenbuterol test taken en route to winning the 2010 Tour de France title, of which he was subsequently stripped.

The seven-stage Eneco Tour through the Netherlands and Belgium begins on August 6, Contador's first day of eligibility to compete again.

Contador says he is "excited" about the race since "it will be my return to competition."
