Food contamination? Possibly. I see a sizable backlash coming because he's not too popular with the fans. We'll have to wait and see what happens next.

Fuyu Li from Radioshack is facing a two year ban for the same drug (his B sample was recently confirmed). Won't be easy to get out of this.

I don't see how he can. His options are take the ban or have the B-sample tested but it sounds like they already know how the 2nd option will pan out and are taking the food contamination strategy. I'm not sure why, the WADA isn't concerned about how something got there, just that it's there.

This was the FIRST thought that came to mind.

too bad. i don't even really care for Alberto, but i don't want to see this.

word travels fast: the Wiki page for Clenbuterol already references Contador's positive test!

My big question is this:

Li took a 2 year hit for the same drug, the same explanation. Now, will Contador be shown the beach for 2 years, or will his "superstar status" protect him?

One can argue that Alberto rode his horse to a Chinese restaurant where he feasted on large servings of sweet-n-sour pork.

From Wiki:

Food contamination

In September 2006 over 330 people in Shanghai were reported to have been poisoned by eating pork contaminated by clenbuterol that had been fed to the animals to keep their meat lean. There are also other informal reports on localized food contamination cases by clenbuterol in the U.S., which led to setting rules that limit consumption of this medicine only to horses.

In February, 2009, at least 70 people in one Chinese province (Guangdong) suffered food poisoning after eating pig organs believed to contain clenbuterol residue. The victims complained of stomachaches and diarrhea after eating pig organs bought in local markets.


If true, love or hate him, this hurts the sport.

It's funny/interesting that the very quickly updated Wikipedia entry for clenbuterol (as first noted by wiz525) reads word for word like his defence statement.

Btw, goodbye SaxoBank Sunguard.
