This Day in Doping: Contador weirdness

| |

Tour de France winner (controversially) Alberto Contador has been suspended pending further investigation of a minute quantity of banned substance found in a blood sample from his winning effort last July.

Not much is known about the substance, clenbuterol, and Contador reportedly contends that food contamination is the only possible source.

Reaction is low key so far.

If Contador is found in violation and stripped of his Tour title, it hopefully will go to Andy Schleck, who deserved the overall win anyway.
