Gianni Da Ros is free again after a Milan prosecutor accepted the request to withdraw the house arrest order yesterday. The Anti-Narcotics Group (NAS) of Milan arrested the Italian, former first-year professional with Liquigas, March 11 for links to drug trafficking. The investigation is ongoing.
"I could hardly wait. I finally see a little light," said Da Ros in La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The arrest of the cyclist from Nave di Fontanafredda (Friuli) followed a night of searches across northern Italy. The investigation is part of an effort by the anti-narcotics group to stop drug trafficking in a series of gyms.
Liquigas and the Italian cycling federation (FCI) immediately suspended the 22-year-old after the arrest. Investigating prosecutors released him from the San Vittore jail in Milan on March 14.
Da Ros' links to the case could bring about a criminal sentence of three months to three years. The investigation is pending. (GB)
