Was Italian doctor Luigi Cecchini the middleman to Italian riders in the Fuentes affair? The Italian media is saying that his name has come up as a middleman.

According to the dpa, under questioning, both Ivan Basso and Michele Scarponi have given "useful evidence towards the identification of an Italian doctor" who introduced them to Fuentes. La Republica is specifically saying that it is Cecchini.

The sid press agency says that Ettore Torri, who is handling the investigation for the Italian Olympic Committee, now wishes to question Cecchini. The Italian doctor has worked with many big name riders, including Jan Ullrich.
