Italy, May 15-June 6, 1999

Report

With Marco Pantani gone, Ivan Gotti was always going to termed the winner by default. He stayed out of trouble in the last stage to win his 2nd Giro, no mean feat. But for the majority of Italian, the true winner of the race was Pantani, who they consider was cheated of the crown by a technicality. The general opinion in Italy is that the sport has lost its credibility. The last two stages of the Giro were sad events and the crowds lining the roads were noticably thinner.

Gotti, however, was given credit for his excellent climbing. Gotti was keen to point out the rules that they are racing under. A hematocrit level of 52% is illegal and all riders know the consequences. He said: "Certain people are saying that it was not justice. I have no feelings personally about it. I am not responsible for the exclusion of Marco Pantani. But it has placed me in a delicate position. The sport is desperately seeking some credibility."

The president of the UCI Hein Verbruggen, said he was heartened by the fact that the rules are being enforced. But this was not impressing anyone. The cloud of drugs which has haunted cycling for more than 40 years is becoming blacker. The Tour de France is now the next big target for the authorities. But certain people in the sport are losing patience. For example, Franco Polti, who is the patron of the team which sponsors Ivan Gotti and Richard Virenque. He said that all competitive racing should be stopped for a year and then the sport starts from scratch.

Gotti says he will race the Tour de France. Virenque is still unsure whether he will be allowed to participate.
