Italian cyclist Ruffoni handed doping ban

Dec 14, 2017 - 4:38 PM The International Cycling Union says it has banned Italian cyclist Nicola Ruffoni for four years for a doping offence.

Ruffoni's positive test for a growth hormone-releasing peptide during training was announced on the eve of the Giro d'Italia in May.

The 26-year-old rider and teammate Stefano Pirazzi, who also tested positive for a GHRP, were fired by Italian team Bardiani CSF.

The UCI previously banned Pirazzi for four years.
