Let's hope there'll be some busts during the Giro, and not just among the wildcards like in '13. I'm missing some good old fashioned GT doping drama.

I thought it was frowned upon to dope now, the mentality had changed

That's only for the World Tour teams; with marginal gains and a really comfy team bus they don't need to dope in this era. It's only the pro conti and amateur teams who are dirty nowdays.

Probably took big risks (glow times) as probably needed to be 'on form' for the 100th Giro.

Bardiani also need to perform to get in next years race as for Italian teams this race is their season and as we have seen so many Italian teams fold or merge if not in the Giro.

Be interesting to see what they got popped for. But they are only doing what all the others are doing.

What would be interesting is to see how many riders racing the Giro have been OOC tested and when.

Bardiani should do their doping on Teide ;)

How will this affect the startlist? Do Bardiani still have time to call up a couple of replacements? Or will they be allowed to start and be pulled only when the B-sample is tested?

If the team is allowed to start at all :eek: Is the "two doping violations within a certain period of time equals short team ban" thingy just for MPCC teams? Can't imagine Bardiani being part of that?

yeah from reading the UCI statement it sounds like the whole team will be banned.

I suggest that Bardiani will be withdrawn from the race - Which will only leave one Italian team in the Giro - Such a shame

Yes, there was probably a lot of pessure by the team to peak for the Giro, the rest of their season has been pretty poor and they are far back in the Coppi Italia that Androni is pretty much dominating.
Too bad, I kinda liked Pirazzi.

Busting a couple no-name (for the general public) riders in a PT team does absolutely nothing against that narrative. If anything, it reinforces it.
