If you haven't been following this, La Repubblica broke the story on Saturday that Filippo Pozzato had been caught on tape admitting to working with notorious doping doc Michele Ferrari. CONI, who banned Ferrari back in 2002 and forbade any cyclist from consulting him on pain of a six-month suspension, had a little talk with Pippo yesterday. Gazzetta reports (via cyclingnews) that Pozzato told them "It’s true, I went to Michele Ferrari from 2005 to 2009, then they told me that it was forbidden and that I risked being suspended so I stopped going there."

Pozzato claims that he received only training plans from Ferrari, not doping advice. His legal team is expected to argue that the no-Ferrari rule has expired. If they are unsuccessful, Pozzato will be out for six months.
