Contador pleased with season, 2012 Tour next goal

Updated: August 31, 2011, 13:04

MADRID (AP) Alberto Contador described his cycling season as "very positive'' and considers the 2012 Tour de France his top priority.

Contador spoke on Spanish state TV, saying he was pleased with his second Giro d'Italia win and fifth-place finish in the Tour this year.

The Spanish cyclist awaits his November date with the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which will rule whether he forfeits his 2010 wins in the Tour and Giro because of a failed drug test blamed on contaminated meat.

Contador says he is not thinking about the case, but he'd like to attend the Nov. 21-24 hearing in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Contador hopes a decision will be reached before the end of the year.
