Alessandra d'Ettorre will take the place of world champion Marta Bastianelli on the Italian cycling team for the Beijing Olympic Games, the Italian Cycling Federation announced Friday. Bastianelli tested positive for a banned appetite suppressant and therefore lost her place on the team. She is scheduled to appear before the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) on August 5 to contest the decision.

Alessandra d'Ettorre will go to Beijing Olympics as a reserve along with Noemi Cantele (Bigla Cycling Team), Tatiana Guderzo (GS Fiamme Azzurre) and Vera Carrara (Fiamme Azzurre).
