Italian Cristian Moreni, who tested positive for testosterone in a sample taken after Stage 11 of the Tour de France, appeared before the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) Wednesday in a hearing.

Moreni acknowledged drug use after the positive test, and his entire team withdrew from the Tour de France.

According to the Associated Press, his lawyers due not believe Moreni will face further questioning. No date is set for a verdict, but Moreni may face up to a two year ban from the sport as well and may have to pay back a year's salary in accordance with a recent code signed by ProTour riders and team managers.
