Doping case against Alberto Contador will not deter sponsorsSaxo Bank, the Danish investment bank, recently announced that it will remain as the main sponsor of the cycling team that has its name even though its new rider, the three-time Tour de France champion Alberto Contador is suspended for doping.

Contador was provisionally suspended after a “very small concentration” of the banned substance clenbuterol was found by a World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Germany in a urine sample that was taken on 21 July, during the Tour.

It is worth noting here that Saxo Bank started its partnership with Riis in 2008 as a joint sponsor of the team and became the main sponsor in January 2009.
