Pellizotti, third at the Giro d'Italia and KOM at the Tour de France in 2009, has been been stopped from competing by the UCI due to biological passport irregularities. The UCI has requested that the Italian cycling federation, FCI, open proceedings against Pellizotti.
More details to come, and more announcements about other riders......
