Cycling is is full of cheats.. So many in the sport doping. A sport full of dudes who can't see a way to win fair and square. Substance found 'on the meat' that's a good one. So you put the drug on meat and eat it and its 'accidental'. Pull me other leg.
in all fairness, I think the article clarifies that it is a provisional suspension pending further investigation.
Contador is a great champion and I hope he's cleared. This was an incredibly difficult Tour de France. Although his was one of the narrowest wins in cycling history, he and the whole Astana team worked very hard for him to win over Andy Schleck, another great athlete.,
Dear sirs - I was quite taken aback by the tone of your article- “Alberto Contador Suspended for Doping, Could Lose Tour de France Title”
It is normally a good practice to make sure that one has the best information possible before posting an article that could destroy somebody else’s reputation. Alberto has not been SUSPENDED by DOPING. A positive result from CLEMBUTEROL was detected in her urine. An investigation has been launched to determine whether the consumption was accidental or intentional.
As a biochemist, given the amount detected on his urine, I must say that it meets the criteria for accidental consumption (such substance has been found on the meat purchased by the team in Spain). You can check online sources for the report issued by Dr. Douwe De Boer (Top world expert on biochemical doping) – He supports the explanation that the consumption was accidental as indicates the test results from the meat analyzed.
I am convinced that the ICU will come to the same conclusion.
