Doping[edit]

On June 5, 2014, Patrick Facchini gave an adverse analytical finding for Tuaminoheptane and was consequently banned for 10 months.[1]

On June 30, 2015, Davide Appollonio gave an adverse analytical finding for EPO and was provisionally suspended.[2] On July 27, 2015, Fabio Taborre gave a positive test result for the banned blood-booster FG-4592 in an out-of-competition control on June 16. The team were automatically suspended by the UCI under new rules.[3] FG-4592 (Roxadustat) is in phase 3 clinical trials and has not yet been commercialised. The drug was developed jointly by FibroGen and AstraZeneca. Unlike EPO, which directly stimulates the production of red blood cells, FG-4592 is taken orally, and stimulates natural production of EPO in a manner similar to altitude training.[4] This class of compounds has been outlawed by WADA. The UCI subsequently suspended the team for 30 days.[5]
