Since its creation, the Italian Vini Zabu team has had nine procedures in the space of twelve years, including 5 cases of EPO, 2 cases of growth hormones, 1 case of Clenbuterol and 1 case for Ostarine. Last October, Matteo Spreafico, one of his runners, had already tested positive twice during the Tour of Italy.
And yet, RCS Sport, the organizers of the next Giro, continue to invite the formation led by Angelo Citracca and Luca Scinto. This is not to the taste of the peloton, but especially of the MPCC which denounces a serious attack on the image of cycling: “Our movement bitterly deplores the fact that the RCS group persists, to this day, in always making so little of it, but also in not giving explanations on their choices. We hope that faced with this umpteenth anti-doping procedure, RCS Sport will know how to take its responsibilities in the future, even if the Italian organizer already had, after the Giro d’Italia 2020, all the elements in hand to do so.“, explained the association via a press release.
If we still have to wait for the result of the second opinion concerning Antonio De Bonis (in the event that the Italian rider claims it), Vino Zabu could this time be excluded from the Giro, to the delight of the MPCC.
