Contador aquitted by Spanish Cycling Federation

Spanish media is reporting that three time Tour de France champion Alberto Contador will have his one-year ban for failing a dope test lifted on appeal by the Spanish Cycling Federation.

Contador's future has been in limbo since he tested positive for minute traces of the banned substance clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour de France.

Professional cycling's governing body, the International Cycling Union, will have a month to decide if they agree with the Spanish organization's decision.
