Gabriele Bosisio denied using the banned blood-booster EPO at a hearing with the Italian Olympic Committee’s Anti-Doping prosecutor today. 29-year-old Bosisio had taken an out-of-competition test in September that showed traces of EPO in his blood. Bosisio rode for LPR, which is also the team of Danilo Di Luca, who finished second at the Giro d’Italia, but was suspended for doping. Gabriele Bosisio came under suspicion because of the UCI’s “biological passport.” The “passport,” created last year, keeps track of blood levels of professionals around the world.
