Belgian magazine Humo has published claims from an individual with the Astana team, who alleges that Alberto Contador used Clenbuterol after the Criterium du Dauphiné as part of a weight-loss treatment. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, claims that the Spaniard had blood extracted between that race and the Tour when, crucially, traces of the banned product were still in his system.
“He had a transfusion performance after the Dauphiné Libéré [Criterium du Dauphiné], and the blood still contained a little bit of clenbuterol from a just-finished slimming treatment,” Humo reported the insider as saying.
Don’t forget to spread that prize money around to the support staff. All of them. Because they will fuck you.
While it is unusual for someone within a team to implicate others in banned practices, there may be an element of ill feeling because of his decision to leave and go to Saxo Bank. The Humo allegations should be viewed in this light. Id.
Have fun on your new team. We’ll miss you. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Oh, you’ll not be racing next year?
Quite a send off.by
