Contador blames bad meat for positive doping test
PINTO, Spain (AP) -- Tour de France champion Alberto Contador is blaming contaminated meat for his positive doping test.
A World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Germany found a "very small concentration" of the banned substance clenbuterol in Contador's urine sample on July 21 at the Tour, according to a statement from the UCI.
Contador told a news conference Thursday in his hometown near Madrid: "It is a clear case of food contamination."
