Piepoli hearing next week

The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor, Ettore Torri, has decided that Leonardo Piepoli's hearing will begin next week. Tuttobiciweb has reported that Torri will commence hearing evidence relating to the rider's positive doping test on December 14, with a result expected on December 18.

The former Saunier Duval-Scott rider was found to have used blood booster CERA in tests conducted on July 4 and 15, with the news of his offence breaking in early October. His B-sample also tested positive and that result was announced on November 21.
