The Court of Arbitration for Sport has set new dates for Alberto Contador's doping case, allowing him to race in the Tour de France. The court says it will hear the case from 1-3 August, more than a week after the Tour finishes in Paris.

Contador is therefore cleared to defend the title he won while testing positive for clenbuterol in last year's race. The case was originally set for 6-8 June.
