Story here. So Alberto Contador is blaming the results of a positive drug test taken during this year’s Tour de France on meat served to the riders. Surprisingly, more than a few people seem to believe him, according to this article: apparently the substance he tested positive is used for beef cattle, other riders who ate the meat also tested positive, and Contador tested positive for a very small amount of the drug.
I know there’s a few Dopers who follow the Tour–what’s your take on this story? Is drug testing getting too good in that it can detect subclinical amounts of drugs, or is Contador soon going to be wondering “Where did my malliot jeune go?”
