Alberto Contador, 2010 Tour de France winner, cleared of doping allegations
Alberto Contador was cleared of doping allegations by the Spanish cycling federation just weeks after it had proposed a one-year suspension for the three-time Tour champion.
Spain's cycling federation last month proposed a one-year suspension of Mr. Contador, which would have stripped him of his 2010 Tour title.
The International Cycling Union (UCI) will have one month to appeal the unexpected decision in the Court of Arbitration for Sport, based in Lausanne, Switzerland. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will have two months.
