The saga of Contador's drug test failure is by no means over
Alberto Contador won the Vuelta de Murcia in his second event since being controversially cleared of doping.
The Tour de France champion, riding for Saxo Bank, defended the lead from Saturday's mountain stage by winning the 12.4km time trial in Murcia.
Contador tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol but was cleared by the Spanish Cycling Federation.
The International Cycling Union will decide whether to appeal against the federation's decision by 24 March.
The Spaniard has consistently said that contaminated meat was responsible for his drugs test failure.
Clenbuterol is a stimulant that increases breathing capacity and boosts the flow of oxygen in the bloodstream.
It is sometimes prescribed to treat asthma but is also often used in attempts to reduce body fat.
Contador set a best overall time of nine hours 27 minutes 18 seconds in the three-day event in Murcia.
French rider Jerome Coppel was 11 seconds behind for Saur-Sojasun, while Russia's Denis Menchov, riding for Geox-TMC, was third, 17 seconds off the pace.
