Matteo Priamo of Team CSF Group met with the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor, Ettore Torri, yesterday in Rome. The two discussed the claims made by former teammate Emanuele Sella and products found at the riders home.

It was the second time Priamo, 26, has met with Torri. Sella named the winner of Giro d'Italia stage six as the supplier of his EPO during his hearing with CONI's prosecutors. Yesterday, the focus was on the products found at Priamo's home – cream and other anabolic steroid based pharmaceuticals – according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Priamo claims they belong to his mother, who was present at the meeting.

CONI is expected to deliver its recommended suspension for Priamo next week. It recommended a one-year suspension for Sella earlier this month; the sanction will be handed down by Italy's anti-doping tribunal December 1.
