Madrid - Three-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador has married his girlfriend of ten years.

The Spanish cyclist wed Macarena Pescador in his hometown of Pinto near the Spanish capital on Saturday.

Contador's spokesman said the couple will spend their honeymoon in Rome.

On November 21-24 the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland will hold a hearing into his alleged doping during his third Tour win in 2010.

Contador faces a two-year ban if CAS rules in favour of the World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union, which have appealed the Spanish cycling federation's decision to clear Contador of doping charges.
