Italian rider Michele Scarponi (Acqua e Sapone) who admitted his involvement in the Operación Puerto affair will face the disciplinary commission of the Italian cycling federation (FCI) on Friday July 13, according to SportWereld.

On June 5 the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) demanded an 18-month suspension for the 27 year-old, for "the use and possession of banned substances". It is up to the FCI to decide the length of suspension Scarponi will receive.
