Alberto Contador's hearing at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) may be delayed until after this year's Tour de France, potentially allowing the Spaniard to ride in the French Grand Tour in July.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had both appealed to CAS after the Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) cleared Contador in February after he tested positive for clenbuterol at last year's Tour de France. The CAS hearing was scheduled to take place in June.
