Zanini: the CONI report

CONI Anti-doping chiefs demanded Thursday that Italian cyclist Stefano Zanini be banned for a year for his alleged role in the 2001 Giro d'Italia doping scandal, the ANSA news agency reported.

The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping panel presided over by Giacomo Aiello has also requested that Zanini, who rides for the Mapei outfit, be fined 2000 Swiss francs and have 50 points deducted from his tally in the world rankings issued by the International Cycling Federation (UCI).

Aiello made his request after examing documents from Florence magistrates probing the affair, and his office has handed over the case to the disciplinary committee of the Italian Cycling Federation because they believe there are "sufficient elements of guilt with regard to the taking of insulin."

Meanwhile, in a separate investigation conducted by Padua magistrates, the cases of Davide Rebellin and Ivan Gotti have been transferred to the UCI and the Monte Carlo Cycling Federation, where both riders are registered.
