Two years for Muraglia

The Italian Cycling Federation (FCI) has suspended Italian Giuseppe Muraglia for two years for testing positive for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) after winning the 22nd Clasica de Almeria. The 28 year-old Italian was sacked from Acqua & Sapone after the positive test in June.

Muraglia was also implicated in the "Oil for Drugs" scandal, and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) recommended a four year sentence for both offenses. The FCI chose to suspend the rider only for the positive test.
