Cycling - Contador to take stand in Puerto doping case

Alberto Contador will give evidence on February 22 in person in the Operation Puerto doping case.

The Spanish star, who has won all three Grands Tours, is only cited as a witness in the case, but he had been expected to give testimony by a video link, rather than appearing before court.

The court case began on January 28 in Madrid.

In 2012 Contador completed a two-year ban for testing positive for clenbuterol, and won the Vuelta a Espana on his comeback.
