Moreni banned for two years

Following his failed doping test during this year's Tour de France, Italian cyclist Cristian Moreni has been banned for two years, the Italian Cycling Federation (FCI) announced Thursday.

The 35-year-old tested positive for testosterone during the 11th stage of the Tour, resulting in his entire Cofidis team withdrawing from the race.

Moreni, the 2004 Italian national champion, acknowledged his guilt after testing positive and did not request his B sample be tested.
