Alberto Contador doping ruling in about 2 weeks



LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The top court in international sports says it will rule on Alberto Contador’s doping case in about two weeks.

The Spanish cyclist is facing a two-year ban for testing positive for clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour de France. He says the clenbuterol came from contaminated beef.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport had planned to decide early this month, but blamed media reports for the “regrettable” delay.

The court says it asked the UCI, WADA, Contador and the Spanish Cycling Federation if they wanted to challenge the composition of the decision-making panel, but all declined.
