RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK’s Andy Schleck, training and racing in Majorca, Spain, reacts with surprise to the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), suspending Alberto Contador for two years.
“There is no reason to be happy now”, commented Andy Schleck. “First of all I feel sad for Alberto. I always believed in his innocence. This is just a very sad day for cycling. The only positive news is that there is a verdict after 566 days of uncertainty. We can finally move on.”
“I trust that the CAS judges took all things into consideration after reading a 4,000 page file. If now I am declared overall winner of the 2010 Tour de France it will not make me happy. I battled with Contador in that race and I lost. My goal is to win the Tour de France in a sportive way, being the best of all competitors, not in court. If I succeed this year, I will consider it as my first Tour victory."
