Rome, July 1 - The parents of former cycling
champion Marco Pantani, who was found dead in a hotel room in
Rimini in 2004 at the age of 34, have warned the Italian Cycling
Federation (FCI) and Italian Cycling Union (UCI) against any
attempt to strip their son's Tour de France title.
Pantani won the Tour de France in 1998 the same year he
also won the Giro d'Italia.
Pantani's name is reportedly among those of 44 cyclists to
feature in a probe in France for suspected use of the
performance-enhancing drug EPO.
There have been reports that Pantani would be stripped of
his title if this is confirmed.
"We warn UCI President Pat McQuaid and FCI President Marco
Di Rocca against any action that would strip Marco of his
titles...which would be legally unsustainable and damage the
image of our son," Tonina and Paolo Pantani wrote.
