Organizers hopeful for Giro free of scandals

Angelo Zomegnan, the director of the Giro d'Italia, is hoping for a drug-free edition of this year's race.

"Nobody knows if there will be any doping scandals at this year's Giro d'Italia but I'm hopeful and I think it'll be a great race," he said to Eurosport. "There will always be someone who tries to cheat in sport, just like in life but all the riders have accepted the biological passport system and have been tested several times."
