Contador may still appeal doping ban, won't retire

Posted:

MADRID (AP) -- Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador says he may appeal the two-year doping ban handed down by sport's highest court.

Contador says he is innocent and has no plans to retire despite hinting previously that he might quit if banned.

He spoke a day after the Court of Arbitration for Sport stripped him of the 2010 Tour de France title. CAS rejected his claim that his positive drug test for clenbuterol was caused by eating contaminated meat.

Contador says his lawyers are examining whether to appeal.
