Team Astana welcomes suspensionThe provisional suspension given to Alberto Contador was supported by Team Astana but the team is waiting further testing.

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

The Spaniard has signed a two-year contract to race with Team Saxo Bank from next season after rejecting an offer from Astana to a new contract.
