A spokesman for Alberto Contador denies the three-time Tour de France winner's positive drug test stemmed from blood doping.
The French sports daily L'Equipe reported Friday that a German lab that found a tiny amount of the drug clenbuterol in Contador's urine sample also found plastic residues of the kind that might turn up after a blood transfusion.
German television station ARD also reported that plastic traces were detected.
Contador spokesman Jacinto Vidarte tells The Associated Press that the Spanish rider "categorically denies having a blood transfusion."
