Dimaro, May 24 - Danilo Di Luca said Friday he was
surprised after international cycling's governing body UCI said
he had tested positive in a doping examination last month before
the start of the Giro d'Italia.
"I didn't expect it. It was a surprise for me. I'm
disappointed," said Di Luca, who has been suspended from
competition by the UCI and fired by his Vini Fantini-Selle
Italia team.
The 2007 Giro winner, who now risks a life ban after
previously being suspended for two years for doping in 2009,
said he would ask the B samples from the test to be checked.
"After the B tests we will talk about this affair again,"
he said.
Vini Fantini-Selle Italia said that, in addition to
dismissing the 37-year-old, they will also seek damages from
him.
The Italian Professional Cyclists' Association (ACCPI)
intends to do the same.
ACCPI said it would "take legal avenues for the very serious
damage this athlete has caused to the image of the whole
profession".
