Alberto Contador Guilty Doping Banned 2 Years

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.
