CAS sets 3-day hearing for Contador doping case



LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Alberto Contador’s doping case will be heard over three days next month at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

CAS says it has set June 6-8 to hear appeals filed by the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency against the three-time Tour de France champion and the Spanish cycling federation.

The UCI and WADA are challenging Contador’s acquittal on doping charges by Spanish authorities in February.

A tribunal accepted Contador’s defense that eating contaminated beef caused his positive test for clenbuterol when he led in the final week of the Tour last July.

Contador is currently leading the three-week Giro d’Italia.
