CAS to Hear Spanish Cyclist’s Doping Case in November

MADRID – The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced on its Web page that it will hear Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador’s doping case between Nov. 21-24.

Contador, a three-time Tour de France winner, tested positive for the performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour, although he says he inadvertently consumed the substance on July 21 of that year by eating contaminated meat.

The cyclist was cleared of wrongdoing by Spain’s cycling federation on Feb. 15, but the World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union appealed the ruling to the CAS.

The Lausanne, Switzerland-based arbitration body has repeatedly postponed the hearing, which will precede a final verdict in the case.

The 28-year-old cyclist, a Saxo Bank-SunGard team member, claimed victories earlier this year at the Giro de Italia (Tour of Italy) and in competitions held in the Spanish regions of Murcia and Catalonia.

He also competed in the 2011 Tour de France, where he was bidding to become the first cyclist since 1998 to win the Giro and the Tour in the same year.

But Contador finished fifth, nearly four minutes behind Australia’s Cadel Evans.
