Contador Investigation: Expect Alberto to be found Innocent

VeloNews is reporting that WADA lawyers have threatened to walk out of the Alberto Contador hearing which is supposed to rule this week whether the Spaniard will be found to have violated doping rules. Contador has a lot riding on this ruling (no pun intended) since the rule states that any clenbuterol found in his system is a violation that will cause him to lose his Tour de France title and ban him for up to two years. As we've covered on Fraudbytes previously, Contador claims he got the steroid from eating tainted beef during the tour.

The VeloNews article is short and highlights several claims by an anonymous source that Contador has biased the arbitration process in his favor. If you're interested in why WADA is so frustrated by this hearing, I'd recommend reading the article.
