SPANISH cyclist Alberto Contador, 29, has said that his lawyers are looking into a possible appeal against the two-year doping ban handed down by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Contador, who had once vowed to retire if he was found guilty, has said that he will now continue to train even harder and “stay as clean as always”.
Contador is one of only five men to have won all three major cycling races, but the ban, as well as ruling him out of this year’s Tour de France and the Olympic Games in London, will see him stripped of several wins including his 2010 yellow jersey.
