At the time the winner was Alberto Contador of Spain (also the 2009 event winner). However, after a prolonged investigation of drug use (he tested positive for the banned anabolic agent clenbuterol), Contador was stripped of his win, and the win was awarded to Andy Schleck of Luxembourg (see winners list).
