Alberto Contador was stripped of his 2010 Tour de France title Monday and banned for two years after sports' highest court found the Spanish cyclist guilty of doping.I've said on here before that, after the Floyd Landis mess, I'm not believing any athlete's claims of innocence. That includes Lance Armstrong and other high-profile athletes.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport suspended the three-time Tour champion after rejecting his claim that his positive test for clenbuterol was caused by eating contaminated meat on a 2010 Tour rest day.
While I'm not going to say their guilty until it's ruled on by a court, I'm also not going to buy into whatever their excuse of the day is. Overtraining? Bah. Contaminated meat? Whatever.
In bodybuilding there's an old saying that goes like this: The only people who fail a drug test are those who are stupid enough to fail a drug test.
