Basso gets two years for doping offence.
Ivan Basso has been given a suspension of 24 months by the Italian cycling federation (FCI) disciplinary commission for his involvement with Doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, and will be able to resume racing October 24, 2008. The 29 year-old Italian cyclist confessed on May 7 that he had extracted the blood that was found in bags labelled ‘Birillo’ in Madrid, after increasing pressure from Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor Ettore Torri and mounting evidence against him.
…The disciplinary commission subtracted 236 days for the sum of the days Basso has already spent under suspension.
Think he’s be back in the pro ranks once his suspension is over?
I think he will be.by
