Pierpaolo de Negri provisionally suspended for a steroid AAF (non-negative apparently?) on 21 December.

His team MsTina-Focus say that this happened while he was a rider with Nippo-Vini Fantini - which is true.
But they elegantly avoid mentioning that they're run by Stefano Giuliani who until last month has been a DS at ...
Nippo-Vini Fantini. :P
he now was banned for 4 years - "only" ~2 years after the posiitive test :S

    Another update for Dopeology...

    Italian former professional cyclist Mauro Santambrogio has been handed a three-month ban after racing in a fixed-gear criterium, having failed to disclose his past convictions for doping when he applied for his licence.



    Quote
    In June, the 35-year-old from Como took part in the Urbe Criterium Race in Ostia near Rome, which also serves as the Italian fixed-gear championship reports La Gazzetta dello Sport(link is external).

    Prosecutors said that his Master’s licence had never been validated, and that he had falsely declared that he had never been sanctioned for doping, a condition for the licence to be released.

    Besides being banned for three months, Santambrogio was also fined €500.

    During 2010 and 2011, when he was with BMC Racing, Santambrogio was twice suspended from racing by his team after being linked to an anti-doping investigation in Mantua, although no charges were ever brought against him.

    In 2013, he was banned for two years, reduced to 18 months because of assistance he gave to the anti-doping authorities, after testing positive for EPO during that year’s Giro d’Italia.

    the article is a bit confusing, it seems like there are two basically independent incidents. As far as I can see:

    1st one is, that he raced with a (for whatever reason) not (yet) validated license, and got penalized for that.

    2nd is, that he lied to an organizer, who apparently doesn't want ex-dopers at his events.

    Apparently no doping control at Étoile de Bessèges, according to Magnus Cort Nielsen.

    not good, but with so many races at the same time, I guess it's not too unusual, especially on 2.1 level.

    No idea how it really works though. In the Romanian races I've been to, for example, some years there are controls, and in others there are not. I guess the UCI/CAFD decides to send a DCO or not, and if they don't, the National Federation is free to decide if they want to do some testing?!

    A bit disappointed how the Astana stories went cold so quickly. Movement from CADF/UCI had been expected for a year or so but it didn't get far enough. Some people apparently talked but it was already too late because the structures had evolved since then. There are a lot of proxies in doping these days and it's easy enough to switch them around when things get suss. So it looks like it's going to be a big baby blue year of rubbing our noses in it.

    So this is encouraging.  :S

    Spanish police take down doping wholesaler and seize 1.6 million drug doses

    The investigation began after 100 boxes of growth hormone were sent to the wrong address last July.
     :lol

    Quote
    In total, 1.65 million drug doses were found, totalling 40,000 boxes of 140 different oral and injectable substances. This included 1.3 million units of anabolic or other injectable products and 31,000 doses of growth hormone.

    Those involved in the operation used at least seven web pages to offer EPO and other performance-enhancing drugs to customers for at least the last 10 years, with authorities saying they expect a large number of national and international athletes to be implicated.

    Good thing the '90s are behind us! :cool  :shh
