Biography[edit]

He currently lives in Almenno San Bartolomeo, Italy. Mazzoleni is a talented climber and was a higher finisher on the General Classification in the 2005 Tour de France, notably he finished 3rd on stage 16 to Pau. He also finished 3rd overall in the 2007 Giro d'Italia behind 1st place winner Danilo Di Luca and 2nd place Andy Schleck. His brother in-law is Ivan Basso. Mazzoleni left Astana on July 16, 2007, following implication in the Italian Oil for Drugs case.[1] On April 8, 2008 Mazzoleni was given a two-year suspension due to his involvement in this case.[2]
