Matteo Rabottini (born 14 August 1987) is an Italian racing cyclist who rides for the UCI Continental team Meridiana–Kamen.

Career[edit]

He was provisionally suspended by the UCI in September 2014 following an adverse analytical finding for EPO in a test taken in August 2014.[2] He was dropped from the Italian World Championships team.[3] In May 2015 UCI announced on their website that Rabottini was banned for two years, with a cut of 3 months for "Substantial Assistance in Discovering or Establishing Anti-Doping Rule Violations".[4] The ban ended on 6 May 2016.[5][6] He joined Meridiana–Kamen upon the conclusion of the ban.
