Contador Found Doping at 2010 Tour de France

This one is hot off the press. VeloNation is reporting that the yellow jersey winner, Alberto Contador, tested positive back in July when he was racing in the Tour de France. Apparently, the tests and re-tests have been going on behind the scenes and the news just became public. Contador's spokesman is saying that Contador believes the banned substance must have come from something he ate. Sound familiar? This is the modus operandi for pro cyclists when they are caught doping. Most deny it like Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton and Ullrich and Basso and...In any case, Alberto may be the second Tour de France winner to have his title taken away from him. Disappointing for sure but not at all surprising...
