AFP is reporting that Gianni Bugno, the 1991 and 1992 world champion, has been given a suspended six-month jail term for possessing banned stimulant drugs.
Bugno was also fined 5,000 Euros for buying amphetamines.
The offence took place in Belgium in 1999 at the Three Days of De Panne when a parcel containing the banned drugs destined for Bugno was intercepted by police.
Bugno was a Mapei team director then but no Mapei riders were implicated.
Happy Birthday To...
