CAS bans Contador for 2 years for doping

Updated: February 06, 2012, 06:19

MADRID (AP) The Spanish cycling federation says sport's highest court has banned Alberto Contador for two years after finding him guilty of doping.

Federation president Juan Carlos Castano tells The Associated Press that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has suspended the Spanish rider after rejecting his claim that his positive test for clenbuterol was caused by eating contaminated meat.

The three-man CAS panel upheld appeals by the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency, which challenged a Spanish cycling tribunal's decision to exonerate Contador.
