France champion Alberto Contador has been suspended from cycling for one year and stripped of his 2010 Tour de France victory, his spokesperson announced Wednesday.

Contador has 10 days to present any new evidence or material.

The only previous Tour winner to be stripped of his title was Floyd Landis in 2006.

A Contador statement said he will hold a news conference with his team director Bjarne Riis on Friday.
