Spanish cycling chief slams Contador sanction

Spain's cycling federation chief said Monday's decision to slap a two-year doping ban on Alberto Contador is bad news for cycling and for Spanish sport in general.

"We should respect this decision but we do not share it obviously," Spanish Cycling Federation president Juan Carlos Castano said of the sanction, which also stripped the Spaniard of his 2010 Tour de France title.

"And moreover I think that for cycling and for Spanish sport in general it is very bad news," he told Spanish public radio RNE. Asked about a possible appeal, he said: "For us, this is over."
