Contador tests positive for dope, could lose Tour de France title
Alberto Contador, the 2010 winner of the Tour de France (he's won the race two previous times as well), has tested positive for a banned substance called clenbuterol. The drug is used to add muscle and lose weight. Contador has claimed that he ingested the substance accidentally, most likely because of food contamination. Condor is provisionally suspended, and the International Cycling Union is investigating further. If Condor is found guilty he could be stripped of his Tour de France title, as Floyd Landis was in 2006 after testing positive for doping. Read more: New York Times
