If the UCI decides to pursue disciplinary action against Contador, the case will first be referred to the Spanish cycling federation for a hearing. If found guilty, Contador would be stripped of his Tour title and face a ban.

Contador has suggested he might quit the sport regardless of the outcome of the investigation.
