That's a very black and white opinion you have about the legal system. I hope you never accidentally run into some trouble then.

Fact of the matter remains that CAS prosecuted someone who they didn't think was guilty. Find me one civilized court that does that.

It's like prosecuting someone for murder when he acted in self-defense.
It's ridiculous: 95% of the people who watch cycling prob don't even know that.

Anyways Contador couldn't provide sufficient evidence that he was not guilty and the rules laid down that he was assumed to be guilty without them actually being able to prove that he was guilty of using doping.

If he would have gone to the ECHR he would have won the case 100%. This goes in against against the presumption of innocence which is pretty much the foundation of each state but which cycling completely ignores.

I guess Contador didn't wanna bother, besides it would have taken months, maybe even years.

Nice
I have not studied the route (I know, HUGE flaw) but is Ax3 the first major mountain. It would fit with Contadors normal approach. Just hit them as early as you can and leave them fighting for second.

Same approach SKY used this year. Gonna be fun to watch Rogers pulling Contador, Froome, Wiggins and every other contender for the overall victory.

wait, wait. Isn't CAS an arbitration court? presumption of innocence is not the consideration at that point. Contador had already being "cleared" by his national federation when UCI brought the case to CAS who had to decide if UCI objections were valid. They did and Contador at that point choose to not pursue the matter in other venues. I am not even sure he could have. We know the rest and can't change it. To me it will remain a case of being victimized
