Contador: ‘Zero Tolerance’ for Dopers
Calls own suspension "injustice"
Alberto Contador called for “zero tolerance” for dopers in an interview with French television last week, while dismissing his own sanction for drug use as an “injustice.” Speaking from the team’s training camp, Contador said that “there is no place for cheaters” in cycling, but that he had done nothing to deserve the two-year suspension he received after testing positive for clenbuterol in 2010. “I worked according to the regulations and they said that the victory is not mine, it’s an injustice,” he said.
Saxo-Tinkoff faces the prospect of not competing on the International Cycling Union’s WorldTour next year because UCI rules dictate that Contador’s post-suspension wins of the Vuelta a España and Milano-Torino don’t count toward the team’s point total.
