CAS has postponed the June 6 - 8, 2011 hearing; it is not "cancelled" as been implied. (Source: http://www.tas-cas.org/news ). CAS has also stated that a "new hearing dates will be fixed as soon as possible."

Road.cc is reporting that the postponement is at the request of the Contador camp.

Yes the delay was requested by Contador's lawyers....

"delay was requested by Contador's lawyers" :? :?:

" ... we abide by CAS's decision to defer the hearing
on the balance of what they heard from Mr Contador's lawyers
," Howman continued.

"I think they're going to appoint some news dates and I don't think it will be long before the new dates are known."

Even though it has appealed the decision by the Spanish cycling federation to clear Contador from his charges,
WADA is not in a hurry to see Contador banned.

"We don't run cases to 'win', we run cases to make sure that proper justice is done
and that the court had the opportunity to hear everything.
Once the court makes by a decision we abide by it.

"You have to be to patient, it's regrettable in some circumstances but it's what we agree with.
Unfortunately sometimes legal things can get in the way of what you would prefer," he admitted.

Extra evidence presented. :wink:

The case was due to be held on June 6, 7 but Contador's legal team were granted more time, with a new hearing set to be announced soon. However, a new proposed date could be set for July - during this year's Tour de France - or later in the season.

"The application was made by Contador's lawyers," Howman confirmed to Cyclingnews.

No not semantics, just setting straight the real reason this is being "dragged out". WADA and the UCI are not to blame.
