- Contador suspended 2 years
Where is Don Simon 🙂
I am glad the cheat got his just desserts – stripped of all wins since as well. Should be a longer ban IMO as he continued to race while under investigation and cheated others of places especially the giro win.
Its a good day for cycling that this cheat has been punished
He can only appeal on procedural matters not on findings.Posted 6 years agomuppetWranglerMember
So his ban means that he loses his placing in races since the positive but ends on 5th August this year. Leaving him free to race the Vuelta.
He’ll claim innocence and unfairness on the part of WADA, CAS, UCI. Play the scapegoat and come back more popular than ever (at least in Spain) after a full 5 month layoff.
The one thing that has become clear during this case is that the system is in desperate need of an overhaul.Posted 6 years ago
According to road.cc the CAS has admitted there’s no actual proof of doping?
Do they actually need “proof”? I’m assuming by that they’re referring to smoking syringes and the like, right? Surely the trace of the drug found in his blood is enough?
Worst part of the whole thing is Schleck getting the title 🙁Posted 6 years agoandyflaSubscriber
he should have lost all the titles and be banned from his last competitive ride for 2 years – at the moment he is effectively still advertising himself to sponsors, etc.
Apart from the fact we now know he is a drug addled cheat – as if we didn’t before, will this really affect him ?Posted 6 years agoOscillate WildlyMember
road cycling is as farcical (sp?) as football IMO…..
shlecks now won the TDF 2010, does this mean he will get the prize money for winning too? also havent the schlecks also been done for cheating before?!?! its not really a great outcome either way…
i cant imagine how/why one man decides to cheat and the rest of the TDF line up dont, surely most of the riders are doing it to some extent, riding there luck and trying to get away with it?Posted 6 years agoatlazMember

I’d imagine that Andy will get the money yes. Frank had paid Fuentes and admitted as much but was cleared of doping by the Luxembourg federation. Read into that what you want but no ban and it’s not “The Schlecks” it’s Frank.
I don’t think anyone has said Andy is doping. Whether people like him or not, the implication is he’s clean.Posted 6 years agojota180Member
What happens to bets paid out on Contador winning, and those who bet on Shrek to win? I’m guessing nowt?
Not entirely sure but I would suspect first past the post on sports betting
Gets too complicated otherwise
Paddy Power may take some free advertising and pay out again thoughPosted 6 years agoatlazMember
I do find the Schleck hating a bit bizarre. In the 2010 tour Andy rode as well as anyone could have done, and for someone still young enough to wear the white jersey to be in contention like he was is a feat. Whether you like his personality, you can’t say he’s not deserving of the yellow.Posted 6 years ago
