Danish cyclist Nielsen acquitted of doping

Danish cyclist Nielsen acquitted of doping

Denmark's anti-doping body has acquitted cyclist Philip Nielsen of intentionally doping during last year's Tour of Mexico.
Torben Jessen of the Danish sports federation's doping board said on Tuesday that Nielsen didn't know there was a risk when he ate beef contaminated with clenbuterol, for which he tested positive.
Jessen said there was "no reason" to ban him for doping. The board immediately his suspension imposed by the UCI on Sept. 30.
Nielsen was a member of Team Concordia when he rode the Tour of Mexico in April and May 2010.
Alberto Contador also tested positive for clenbuterol from beef in winning his third Tour de France last year. He eventually was cleared.
