Priamo's CSF Group–Navigare teammate Emanuele Sella, who had won three stages and the mountains classification at the 2008 Giro d'Italia, tested positive for methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (better known as Mircera, an erythropoietin derivative) at an out-of-competition control run by the UCI. After confessing to his doping he named Priamo as his supplier. Though the Italian National Anti-Doping tribunal originally exonerated Priamo, the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled, upon appeal by the Italian National Olympic Committee, that he should be suspended for four years.
