ALBERTO CANTADOR

Cyclists have a long and storied history history of being drug cheats. Therefore, it was no surprise when Tour de France champion Alberto Cantador of Spain tested positive for the banned steroid clenbuterol.

What is surprising is Cantador’s defense. He claims to have accidentally ingested the drug through a “tainted” steak. Even more amazing is the fact that experts say it’s theoretically possible that Cantador’s claims are true. In France, companies have been caught illegall putting that steroid into livestock-in the amount that would have caused Cantador’s positive test for clenbuterol.
