The Giro and the Contador Problem, Part II

Part I

Angelo Zomegnan, Director of the Giro d'Italia, mentioned the matter today during a conference in Milano. "The sport's justice process is slower than we would wish", said Zomegnan. "Clearly, something is not working in the guarantee of our event. I have my hands tied, I can not tell Contador to go home if he and his team want to take part. There is always the presumption of innocence and Contador at the moment is an acquitted athlete in a process and is free to race. But it is clear that this is not the ideal situation."
