Mazzoleni Out of the Tour

Hat tip to Lucybears who mentioned this below, which I confirmed (if you can call guessing at a German annoucement confirmation) at the Astana fan page. Giro 3rd-place finisher Eddy Mazzoleni's racing career is on hold since he's been caught in the dragnet as part of the "oil for drugs" investigation. [Aside: as for the name, I am truly not in on the joke. Are people protesting at races chanting "no drugs for oil!"?] Anyway, Mazz testifies before CONI next week, and unlike Petacchi, Mazzoleni might be under investigation for a little while, which under the Pro Tour ethics code means he's in for some unscheduled vacation this summer.
