Head Aprilla Massimo of rivola commented on the disqualification of Italian Andrea Iannone. He was not allowed to participate in any competition under the auspices of the FIM for 18 months.
“We want Andrew Iannone back in the saddle our bike. We’re going to support him until the very end and will file a new appeal. The judge acknowledged that Andrea had no intent to be doping, that was so ochevino for everyone. We insisted that the steroids got into his body with contaminated food, we are confident that a hundred percent and gave evidence.
The decision of the judges is absurd. Their motivation is clear, athletes must monitor their diet, they are responsible for it. But the hope of a retrial in the court of arbitration in Lausanne remains”, — quotes the Autosport Rivoli.
Recall that during the competition in Malaysia on 3 November 2019 doping test And Iannone gave a positive result for a prohibited substance. After that, the athlete was suspended from competition. Andrea was asked to undertake an analysis of the B sample, which also showed the presence of drugs.
