Saunier Duval Prodir suspends Piepoli

Saunier Duval Prodir announced that it has suspended rider Leonardo Piepoli after receiving official notice from the UCI stating that Piepoli's samples have reported non-negative during tests from the Giro d'Italia.

The lab was not able to identify whether the high levels of Salbutamol were a result of inhalation or subcutaneous injection. While the case works its way through the system, the team decided to suspend the rider in accordance with the UCI Pro Tour code of ethics.

The UCI has filed all the relevant documents with the Monaco Cycling Federation.
