Pozzato gets backdated 3-month ban; will return in a week

The Italian National Anti-Doping Tribunal has given Filippo Pozzato a 3-month ban for working with banned doctor Michele Ferrari, and slapped him with a 10,000-euro fine plus an additional 2,000 for court costs. Pozzato has claimed all along that he received training advice from Ferrari, but according to Velonation

doubts were cast on this when Italian daily La Republica said that Pozzato discussed an annual fee of between €40,000 and €50,000 for the doctor’s services in an intercepted phone call dating back to mid-2009

Rather hefty fee for training advice...

Pozzato admits working with Ferrari from 2005 to 2009, when he broke off with the famed doping doc after being told associating with him could lead to a suspension.
