New, 280 comments

No surprise, I suppose, but now it's official.

Press release:

The International Cycling Union (UCI) today decided – within the time frame stipulated by the Regulations – to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne against the Spanish Cycling Federation’s (RFEC) finding in the case of Alberto Contador. He was acquitted after testing positive for clenbuterol during an in-competition test carried out on 21st July 2010.

The decision to appeal comes after an in-depth study of the file received from the RFEC.
