Team Astana supports Contador suspensionThe provisional suspension given to Alberto Contador was supported by Team Astana but the team is waiting for further evidence.

Contador was informed of the failed test on August 24 and has been provisionally suspended by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).

The Spanish rider signed a two-year deal to race with Team Saxo Bank from next season after rejecting an offer from Astana for a new contract.
