Well, here’s another potential black eye for the sport. There’s a lot of conversation swirling about the levels of the drug found in his system, and how the amount was so far under what is even required to be tested for. Even if he’s innocent, the recent past scandals around Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton have made cycling fans reticent to believe any top pro when it comes to something like this. And it really doesn’t help that Contador comes off as such an arrogant prick a lot of the time.
I hope it’s not true. We don’t need another Tour winner stripped of his title.
