The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) the suspension duration of Emanuele Sella, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Italian anti-doping tribunal issued a one-year ban for the cyclist last month.
Emanuele Sella tested positive for blood booster Erythropoietin in an International Cycling Union (UCI) out-of-competition test on July 23. The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) recommended a one-year ban after its investigation, in which Sella supplied details to the prosecutors.
Sella won three stages and the mountains competition of the Giro d'Italia last May.
