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


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.
