Contador races for Giro win regardless of CAS case

Alberto Contador, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage 18

Spain's Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank) races towards Sunday and his second Giro d'Italia win despite a likely doping suspension.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), even though it postponed its hearing date, should stick to the anti-doping rules that state a rider found positive for clenbuterol is guilty regardless of his excuse. Contador tested positive for the drug at last year's Tour de France, but says he's innocent. He explained the positive test was a result of eating a contaminated steak purchased in Spain.
