Moletta, 82 pastiglie di viagra nell'auto del padreAndrea Moletta, numero 96 al Giro, non è partito ieri, espulso dalla sua squadra, la Gerolsteiner. Nell’ambito di un’inchiesta della Procura di?Padova su un traffico di sostanze dopanti nelle palestre della zona, la Guardia di Finanza ha perquisito una Mercedes, trovando un frigorifero con prodotti sospetti. A bordo dell’auto c’erano Natalino?Moletta, papà del corridore, e il direttore sportivo dilettanti Fulvio?Miotti. Tra l’altro sarebbero state trovate delle siringhe, nascoste dentro tubetti di dentifricio, con sostanze da esaminare, e 82 pastiglie di Viagra. Il Viagra ha effetto vasodilatatore. Secondo gli inquirenti i prodotti del frigorifero erano diretti al Giro d’Italia.
La notizia alla Gerolsteiner è arrivata nella tarda serata di martedì. E la per Moletta sospensione è scattata subito.

CESENA, Italy (AP)—The Gerolsteiner team suspended Andrea Moletta and pulled the Italian rider out of the Giro d’Italia because of alleged doping.
Moletta, who was in 77th place halfway through the three-week Giro, did not start Wednesday’s stage.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported Thursday that Italian police searched a car driven by Moletta’s father in which they allegedly found a refrigerator with suspected doping products as well as syringes hidden inside tubes of toothpaste.
Police said the car was headed to the Giro and the search was part of a wider investigation into doping in gyms in the city of Padua in northeastern Italy.
Gerolsteiner general manager Hans-Michael Holczer made the decision to suspend the 29-year-old Moletta, Gazzetta said.
The Giro d’Italia continued Thursday with a 107-mile flat leg from Forli to Carpi.
