CAS confirms postponement of Contador hearing

Alberto Contador on podium, Tour de France 2010 stage 19

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) confirmed on Thursday afternoon that Alberto Contador's hearing schedule for June 2011 has now been postponed "in order to give to all parties concerned reasonable time to prepare".

The hearing will study the evidence in Contador's case relating to his positive anti-doping test for clenbuterol at the 2010 Tour de France. The Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) had acquitted Contador allowing him to return to racing. Subsequently both the Union Cycliste Internationale(UCI) and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had lodged appeals with CAS, seeking a ban for the positive.
