3 time Tour de France Champion Alberto Contador has been found guilty of doping and banned for 2 Years from professional cycling.
Alberto Contador failed a doping test, testing positive for clenbuterol, while winning the 2010 Tour de France 566 days ago and now his arbitration appeal has failed also.
The Spanish cyclist and national hero was stripped of his title Monday and banned for two years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code.
Alberto Contador’s ban comes days after charges were dropped in a probe on Lance Armstrong. See:http://newsbyphotos.com/2012/02/04/lance-armstrong-innocent/
There are no winners when it comes to the issue of doping but Luxembourg’s Andy Schleck is now in line to receive Contador’s 2010 Tour de France title.

Mark Fabiani, attorney for 7 time 1999 to 2005 Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong, is pleased that no charges were filed against Armstrong or his professional bicycle racing team.
Lance Armstrong has denied using banned performance enhancing drugs and has passed 500 tests over 20 years of competition.
The 40 year old cancer survivor retired from professional cycling in February 2011 to focus on his cancer charity, Livestrong.
“ I am gratified to learn that the US Attorneys Office is closing its investigation. It is the right decision and I commend them for reaching it.
I look forward to continuing my life as a father, a competitor and an advocate in the fight against cancer without this distraction.” – Lance Armstrong

Car of the Year: $1.4 Million Pagani Huayra Supercar http://www.pagani.com/huayra/default.aspx lean and sleek lines that have a clear beginning and an end.
Official world debut was at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 2011.
The dual turbocharged Huayra uses a Mercedes-AMG 60 V-12 engine mounted low reducing the car’s center of gravity and improving handling.
It uses a 7 speed sequential gearbox, dual-disc clutch, titanium exhaust system and 4 flaps at the front and rear of the sports car achieving minimal drag or maximum downforce.
The Pagani Huayra brings tears of joy to the beholder, a duality of elegant curves but also the violence and force that it can unleash.
Elegance Unleashed, Bravo.
