Danilo Di Luca Doping Suspension

UCI announced on Wednesday that that Danilo Di Luca who finished 2nd overall in the Giro d’Italia has been suspended for Doping.

The UCI announced that the decision to provisionally suspend Di Luca was made in response to a report from the WADA accredited laboratory in Paris indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of Recombinant EPO (CERA) in blood samples collected from him at the Giro d’Italia on 20 May and 28 May 2009.

These adverse findings were a direct result of a targeted test programme conducted on Di Luca using information from his biological passport’s blood profile, previous test results and his race schedule.

The provisional suspension of Di Luca remains in force until a hearing panel convened by the Italian Cycling Federation determines whether he has indeed committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules. Di Luca has the right to request and attend the analyses of both his B samples.
