Mazzocchi caught for doping

You will be asking yourself "who's Mazzocchi?" and it was the same question that most of italian people asked themself when in the summer of 2011 he won the Maratona dles Dolomites.
Nothing wrong with winning a big Granfondo event but the strange thing is that the previous year he arrived at something like 50 minutes from the winner and not any other result to compare with.
Well, yesterday he was sanctioned by italian Olympic commitee to a 2 years ban for being caught for Epo at a small Granfondo near Belluno this summer.

He wasn't sanctioned for two years, but CONI is requesting a two years sanction for the Anti-Doping Rule Violation.

Thanks for the correction but how many chances does he has to "escape" the sanction? ;-)
