MURICA, Spain, March 6 (UPI) -- Tour de France champion Alberto Contador Sunday logged a victory in his second race back after being cleared of a positive doping test.
Contador took the three-day Tour of Murcia, defending his lead from Saturday's mountain stage by also winning the 7.7-mile time trials in Murica, Spain.
He ended with best overall time of 9 hours, 27 minutes, 18 seconds, the BBC reported.
The Spaniard's win came in only his second event since he was banned and then cleared by the Spanish Cycling Federation after testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.
Contador has said the positive test result -- which came days before he sealed last year's Tour de France triumph -- was due to eating contaminated meat.
The International Cycling Union is considering whether it will appeal the Spanish federation's decision, with a decision due March 24, the broadcaster said.
