This Day in Doping: Sour Spaniard in a (beef) stew

| |

A whiny Spanish cyclist has been banned for doping, but his name is not Alberto Contador.

Contador says the doping agent clenbuterol turned up in his urine sample because he ate contaminated Spanish beef (which the whiny Spnaish beef industry doubts is true). Floyd Landis says clenbuterol is a commonly used performance enhancer well-known among the peloton.

The dour Spaniard says he hopes for a speedy resolution of his case, as long as it’s “not guilty.” If that doesn’t happen, the whiny Spaniard says he may quit cycling.
