Almost two years later, Andy Schleck has his yellow jersey for winning the 2010 Tour de France. The Luxembourg rider finished second in the race, but Alberto Contador was stripped of the title for failing a doping test. Schleck has repeatedly said the decision to give him the title felt like a hollow victory since he did not win it on the grueling roads of France. Contador lost the title when sports' highest court in February rejected his story that contaminated meat caused the failed drug test. The jersey was handed over to Schleck on Tuesday in a ceremony attended by Tour de France organizers. It came on the eve of the Tour de Luxembourg, a tuneup for the Tour de France, which starts June 30.
