He has kept his silence for months since the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sport handed down a two-year ban to the Tour de France winner on February 6. But now he seems more determined than ever. Contador has stuck to his story: the trace of banned substance clenbuterol detected in his urine at the 2010 Tour de France came from a contaminated steak he ate on the eve of the test.
The 29-year-old two-time Tour de France winner he was stripped of the third win in 2010 along his Tour of Italy title of 2011 believes it is time to turn a new page. Only in the past few days has Contador spoken of his feelings during the doping suspension. “These have been long months of suspension when I did not always want to go out and train. People’s affection helped me,” he said.
