Pantani Out For 4 Years?
The Italian judicial heavies are recommending a four year ban from cycling for Marco Pantani’s alleged use of insulin during last year’s Giro, the Itailian sports daily Datasport reported yesterday.
For his part, Pantani’s Mercatone Uno website has nothing to report but the expected public relations spin. They talk of his ever-growing form, and say he now has the miles in his legs, and is working on his power. He’s even schedlued a “test” on Sunday to see how fast he is climbing.
But shouldn’t Marco have tweaked his form to these levels a few weeks ago like the rest of the peloton?
