WADA disputes Contador's contaminated meat theory

Alberto Contador leads, Paris-Nice 2010, stage five

Tour winner Contador tested positve for clenbuterol during the race and immediately suggested that he must have ingested the substance by eating tainted meat brought by a friend from Spain to France.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
