“He says he won't eat beef again in his sporting career, because he doesn't want to risk another positive,” spokesman Jacinto Vidarte told VeloNews. “He does eat pork and chicken, but he hasn't eaten beef since August.”
Contador and his legal team still adhere to their claim that contaminated beef is the only explanation for clenbuterol presence in his system during the 2010 Tour. His lawyers have presented all evidence that supports their argument to Spanish authorities and await a final ruling on February 15. Should the verdict call for a ban, Contador will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
