Contador fails drug test!

Sorry Alberto, I gave my benefit of doubt to Landis. You're guilty a-hole! I hope they strip you of your TDF title! Then it will go to Schleck.

Someone slipped him some tainted meat. I never liked that guy, would rather have seen Andy winning it this year.

Yeah, and Landis had been drinking. Heard it. I am giving him better odds of getting off since he isn't American!

RE: Contador fails drug test!

Seems like it has been FOREVER since and more news was released on this.  I just checked, and looks like the results will be in tomorrow. Contador has been on a "provisional" suspension since the initial results were released. He said he would retire from cycling if they decide to ban him.

RE: Contador fails drug test!

WTF?
http://edition.cnn.com/2011/SPORT/02/15/spain.contador/?hpt=T2

So they go from a 2 year ban, to a recommended 1 year ban, to clearing him of all charges? And it was the Spanish cycling federation that was in charge of making the decision? Like they don't have a vested interest? Where the F was WADA who crucified Floyd Landis? Landis turned out to be a cheating sack of crap. Contador is a cheating sack of crap too! I am beginning to think they ALL dope! Every last one of those guys! Just some are better at hiding it than others!

Sadly, I think you are right, Rob. Doping is endemic throughout pro cycling. Very distressing, but it's reality. Better cycling through science:(

I'm still a bit skeptical about Contador. However, having a quick look on the net, he may have a case

RE: Contador fails drug test!

I am guessing they will overturn the aquital and ban him for two years. And that he will lose his TDF victory and all the wins since then. Just a wild guess though.
