Alberto Contador, a two-time winner of the Tour de France who was stripped of a third title for using a banned substance, says cycling needs to take something positive from the Lance Armstrong scandal. Contador spoke to reporters on Sunday on the eve of the Tour de San Luis in Argentina. The Spaniard said Armstrong's admission that he took performance-enhancing drugs to win his seven Tour de France titles was ''hard on the image of cycling,'' but he said he wanted to ''find the good in it.'' Contador won the Tour de France in 2007 and 2009 but was stripped of his 2010 title for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.
