Three Italian cyclists sanctioned for ADRVs

Three cyclists have been sanctioned for anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs), Italy’s anti-doping agency (NADO Italia) has announced. Amateur cyclist Luca Staccioli has been sanctioned with a three year ban after reporting an adverse analytical finding (AAF – or ‘positive test’) for testosterone at the Paesetto Trophy 3 in Bozzone on 18 August. His sanction will run from 17 September, when he was provisionally suspended, until 16 September 2024. His result at the Paesetto Trophy has been cancelled. 

Matteo Bravaccini, also an amateur cyclist, has been sanctioned with a three year ban from 28 September 2021 until 27 September 2024. His sanction was reduced from the standard four year ban for prompt admission. 

Finally, Roberto Semenaro has been sanctioned with a six month ban from 17 September, expiring on 16 March next year. The mountain biker was provisionally suspended due to an AAF for furosemide at the Marathon Cicli Manca on 25 July. NADO Italia said that his result would be annulled.
