Di Luca: Two Year Suspension for CERA
Danilo Di Luca has been suspended for two years by the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI). He tested positive for the EPO derivative CERA at the 2009 Giro d'Italia (riding for LPR). Under the decision, announced today, Di Luca must pay a fine of 280,000 Euro and costs of 2,040 Euro.
The suspension runs through July 21, 2011.
My heart goes out to the people of Abruzzo, the earthquake victims, who must feel so betrayed by one of their own.
