Alberto Contador wins in Milan

9/26/2012

MILAN -- Alberto Contador won the revived Milano-Torino road race on Wednesday, his second title since returning from a doping ban.

Contador moved ahead of the peloton on the final climb to the Basilica di Superga and held on for his first victory in a one-day, 123-mile race. Diego Ulissi of Italy was second, while Fredrik Kessiakoff of Sweden was third.

Contador returned from a doping ban in August, and won the Spanish Vuelta earlier this month.

He tested positive for clenbuterol en route to winning the 2010 Tour de France, blaming contaminated meat for the result. He lost his appeal in February.
