BMC Racing Team: Ongoing Italian Investigation

2. May 2011

Santa Rosa, California

The ongoing Italian investigation, which includes two of our current members, Alessandro Ballan and Mauro Santambrogio, continues. The investigation started when the two were not part of the BMC Racing Team.

Team Policy

BMC Racing Team President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz said new information received, along with consideration of the team's anti-doping policy and the UCI's Code of Conduct, means the two will be held out of competition pending further details. Both riders have been cooperating fully with the investigation, and, as we did last year, we will respect their presumption of innocence and we expect them to continue their full support to the authorities. Ochowicz said the team will monitor the investigation and both riders will have to personally address any accusations on their own.
