Contador accused of doping in 2005 by fomer team masseur

According to a Spanish newspaper, a former masseur of the Liberty Seguros team has stated under oath that he personally saw Alberto Contador being injected with insulin, a forbidden substance, during the 2005 Tour de France, when Contador rode for the Spanish squad. The source, who has remained anonymous, made the allegations on May 11, 2011, in front of representatives of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which was looking into the Spanish Tour de France winner's Clenbuterol positive from the Tour 2010 and preparing to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Contador's lawyers, according to Interviu, managed to avoid having the witness testify in front of CAS as the Contador case unfolded.
