Alberto Contador, winner of the 2010 Tour de France, lost his title on February 6, 2012 when the CAS found him guilty for doping. Contador's drug test on the July 21 rest day of the 2010 Tour showed high levels of clenbuterol, which Contador blamed on the meat he ate in Spain. After an investigation, Spain's cycling governing body initially cleared him in February 2011, but the UCI and WADA appealed the decision. A year later, the CAS has imposed a back-dated two-year ban and removal of all titles won since January 25, 2011, the day the Spanish federation proposed a one-year ban. Contador will be eligible to ride again on Aug. 6, forcing him to miss the Giro d'Italia, the Tour de France and the London Olympics.
