El Vendrell - Tour de France champion Alberto Contador says he will fight to "confirm my innocence" after the International Cycling Union (ICU) decided to appeal his doping acquittal.

The Spaniard tested positive for clenbuterol during last year's Tour, but he was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Spanish Cycling Federation after blaming the result on contaminated beef.

Contador found out about the UCI's appeal when he finished Thursday's stage of the Volta of Catalunya. He told AS sports daily "the race has been like any other day. We will go to CAS to confirm my innocence even more so."

Contador says "I would have liked there to have been no appeal, but it has happened. In any case, my plans do not change."
