UCI to study Alberto Contador acquittal

The International Cycling Union (UCI) yesterday announced that it has received the decision of the Spanish Cycling Federation’s (RFEC) Disciplinary Commission in the case of Alberto Contador (Team Saxo Bank-SunGard), according to uci.ch. Alberto Contador was acquitted the day before when the the Spanish Cycling Federation reversed its proposed ban of one year and ruled that Contador was not at fault for a non-negative doping test at the 2010 Tour de France, which Contador blames on eating contaminated meat. Commenting on the RFEC decision the UCI stated: “While acknowledging the differences between the conclusions of the recommendation that had been presented to the rider by the rapporteur of the RFEC Disciplinary Commission and those expressed in the Commission’s decision announced today, the UCI reserves the right to conduct an in-depth study of the reasons behind the decision before expressing its opinion.” In accordance with the international regulations the UCI now awaits the full dossier on the Alberto Contador case from the RFEC. The UCI expects to issue its decision within 30 days after receiving the requested documentation.
