The Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) recommended a two-year competition ban for Giovanni Carini. The Italian racer tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) in an anti-doping control on June 28, 2008, at the end of the Italian National Championship week during which he won the non-contracted elite category road race.

Last month, his "B" sample was also found positive, thereby confirming the results of the "A" sample. Next, the Italian Cycling Federation will review CONI's recommendation.
