(REUTERS) - Cycling has to move on and put the Lance Armstrong scandal behind it, according to two-times Tour de France winner Alberto Contador who returned from a doping ban last August.

"People have already talked a lot about that interview.

Nobody was surprised by what he said," Contador, who was stripped of the 2010 Tour title for doping, told reporters ahead of the Tour de San Luis (Argentina) on Sunday.

"It's hard for the image of cycling, but I want to take what can be good - maybe we can close the chapter of this decade and focus on the present and the future of this beautiful sport,"added the Spaniard.
