Italian Pro Continental team Serramenti Diquigiovanni-Androni Giocattoli has announced the signing of Michele Scarponi for two years. The Italian will be racing again as soon as the Giro dell’Appennino on August 3.
Scarponi had admitted his implication in the Operación Puerto case before the Italian Olympic committee CONI in May 2007, and was handed a 18-month suspension in July, from May 15, 2007, to November 15, 2008. But a ruling made by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in March 2008 moved the lifting of the ban to August 1, 2008.
