  Alberto Contador banned by Court of Arbitration for Sport

Alberto Contador has been stripped of his victory in the 2010 Tour de France and banned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

This was after the cyclist from Spain gave a positive test for the stimulant clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg, who finished runner-up by only 39 seconds, was awarded with winner title of the 2010 Tour de France.

Schleck insisted he would not take any joy as he always believed in the innocence of Contador and said his goal is to win the Tour de France in a sportive way by being the best of all competitors, and not in the court.

The positive test of Contador dates back to 21 July 2010, when he was tested during the rest day of the Tour in Pau, four days before the Paris finish.

The CAS verdict brings to an end to one of the most protracted doping sagas of cycling. Contador proclaimed his innocence since the test result was made public but the assertion made by Contador was dismissed by the World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union (UCI) after the cyclist was cleared by the Spanish Cycling Federation in January 2010.

WADA director general David Howman wants reform and collaboration with national federations in light of Alberto Contador case.

Howman, on the eve of the PCC (Partnership for Clean Competition) conference in New York, pinpointed the dangers brought in by organized crime, corruption, doping within sport, and a lack of drive from within governing bodies.

“We, WADA, were set up because every sport and every government had a different rule. I think things have improved considerably because now there is one set of rules covering everything, and I think that the gaps to the cheaters has narrowed quite considerably,” Howman told Cyclingnews.
