The UCI has provisionally suspended Italian pro Massimo Giunti after a laboratory found the blood booster EPO in a urine sample from an out-of-competition test on February 23.
The UCI said its biological passport program identified ‘an unusual blood profile’ that led the UCI to target Giunti for testing.
The provisional suspension remains in force until a Italian Cycling Federation hearing. The lab found EPO in a so-called “A-sample.” Giunti has the right to request and attend the analyses of a secondary “B sample.”
Giunti races for the Pro Continental Androni Giocattoli team.
