Ruggero Marzoli (Tinkoff Credit Systems) and Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) will face Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor Ettore Torri to answer questions stemming from the 2004 investigation Oil for Drugs. The former will meet with CONI today at 10:00 while the 2007 Giro d'Italia winner will have his hearing next Saturday, July 14.

The riders, both from Abruzzo, have been linked with Doctor Carlo Santuccione. Marzoli, suspended from his team, is suspected of using EPO, Human growth hormones (hGH) and testosterone. In 1999 he was suspended for four months for drug trafficking. Di Luca was further linked to Santuccione via documents supplied by Italy's Anti-Narcotics Group (NAS) and recently published in the Italian press.
