Former Bardiani-CSF rider Stefano Pirazzi has been handed a four-year ban after failing a drug test ahead of this year’s Giro d’Italia.

The 30-year-old tested positive for a human growth hormone, GH-Releasing Peptides (GHRPs), in an out-of-competition test on April 27, with news of the positive test being announced just two days ahead of the start of the Giro d’Italia.

The Italian rider’s suspension has been backdated to the date of the positive test, which will prevent him from racing until May 3, 2021.

His former teammate, Nicola Ruffoni, also tested positive for the same banned substance a day before Pirazzi, with his B-sample also returning positive.
