Three-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador of Spain holds aloft the Spanish national flag during a victory lap with his Astana teammates after the 20th and last stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 102.5 kilometers (63.7 miles) with start in Longjumeau and finish in Paris, France, Sunday, July 25, 2010.

— Alberto Contador has been stripped of his 2010 Tour de France title and banned for two years after sport’s highest court found him guilty of doping.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport suspended the three-time Tour champion after rejecting his claim that his positive test for clenbuterol was caused by eating contaminated meat during the 2010 Tour.

The three-man CAS panel upheld appeals by the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency, which challenged a Spanish cycling tribunal’s decision last year to exonerate Contador.

His ban was backdated and he is eligible to return to competition on Aug. 6.

The decision was announced by CAS in Lausanne, Switzerland.
