Two years for Fertonani

By Susan Westemeyer

The disciplinary committee of the Italian cycling federation has suspended Marco Fertonani of Caisse d'Epargne for two years. The 31-year-old tested positive for testosterone after the Tour Mediterranean in February. The team suspended him in July when the test results were made public.

Fertonani turned pro in 2002 with Team Phonak. In 2005 he rode for Domina Vacanze before transferring to Caisse d'Epargne in 2006. He won a stage in the Vuelta Castilla y Leon in 2006 and one in the Tour of Qinghi Lake in 2004. He finished fourth in the Tour Med this year.
