    Not totally clear yet; seems to be just breaking.


    Three-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador has been "formally and provisionally suspended" by cycling's governing body after he tested positive for a banned steroid during this year's race [Tour de France].

    Contador's A and B samples tested positive for clenbuterol, but Union Cycliste Internationale said Contador had a "very small concentration" of the banned substance in his urine.

    Jacinto Vidarte, Contador's publicist, said the substance was found in a test taken July 21. Contador has blamed food contamination as the only possible explanation. (AP)

    "very small concentration" = 50 picograms. That is very small.

    Also, Clenbuterol is apparently not actually a steroid - its a stimulant along the same lines as ephedrine. At any rate, it sucks to have yet another scandal in cycling.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    I read somewhere last night that some other athlete had tested positive for trace amounts of clenbuterol, and they thought it was from a contaminated nutritional supplement.

    I know some reports have made it sound like Contador will be on the hook regardless of culpability, but I suspect this might all go away if none of his other labs show a problem.

    i believe some guy out there did his own 'study' where he took most of the drugs on the market and recorded their results. said it made him really fast and great at recovering, but the side effect and coming off of them really fucked him up. i can't find the artlice though.

    I think it's accepted that anyone that can compete at that level HAS to be taking some sort of supplement. What I don't understand is how someone's eligibility for winning can be based on how crafty he is. Let's be honest; the dude in second place was doping JUST as much as the dude in first place. A better solution would be if the blood samples don't show up positive before the race, let it ride. As testing gets better, ALL blood samples will show up positive. Might as well let the technology of the time be the decisive aspect, as opposed to the future tech's ability to detect doping.I have a two part question: 1. Why is he doing that? And 2. Should we light him on fire.

    I appreciated it.

    Nop, what they say is true. One of my best friends (not for cycling) did that once just to get over the hump and lose his first 30 lbs to get back in fighting shape. He didn't think he was ever going to compete again, but just in case he has them shipped to my place.

    no, he was already notified. what they do is they test the A sample. let you know what the result was and hear your excuse. then they test the B sample and let you know the result and hear your excuse. then they take your excuse into advisement, make a ruling, then tell velonews.joeyfresh, MPH: Clearly you've never met Shah.

    ^Try having a neck and leg muscles that designers think you should be at least 6'2" to have. It's all skinny "my girlfriend told me to stop wearing her jeans so now I have to buy my own" jeans or middle aged "jesus christ, I just realized Ben and Jerry's and chocolate croissants aren't fat free, fuck" fatass Dockers pants. It's as shameful as a money shot to the baby jesus's face.

    But to make up for my pain, I'd rather do damage to the designers' bodies than to my own.

    And, you're welcome. I think that, on a fundamental level, we all just work for the occasional thumbs up from our peers.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    I'm not sure exactly how I feel about doping in pro sports. I mean, these people are already super beings at what they do, and we watch them because they are the best at what they do, and we admire them for that, and enjoy watching them compete with other people who are the best at the sport. The average person will never be able to compete. What's wrong with making these super beings a little more super?Girls on bikes really turn my crank

    because it's a slippery slope of body modification that ends with our high school teachers becoming homicidal robots. that's why.

    A test new to the antidoping movement was used for the first time at the Tour de France last summer, and now it appears that the three-time Tour winner Alberto Contador — who tested positive for a banned drug at the race — may have more explaining to do.

    That new test detects a specific type of chemical, called a plasticizer, that is found in plastic IV bags. Evidence of that chemical in an athlete’s urine could mean the athlete has used a blood transfusion to boost endurance. The World Anti-Doping Agency bans blood transfusions or any intravenous infusions, except in a medical emergency.

    A test performed on at least one of Contador’s urine samples from the Tour revealed levels of that chemical eight times higher than the minimum amount that signifies doping, according to a person with knowledge of the test results.

    I had a dream last night where I helped run a race he was in. Afterwards I met him, and he was a really cool guy (I doubt this is actually true). In my dream, I made sure to grab pictures to be sure it happened. Then I had a really crazy conversation about this whole doping thing going on. Then I woke up. And checked my phone for the pictures...



    ...I am disappoint.I have a two part question: 1. Why is he doing that? And 2. Should we light him on fire.
