Iannone CAS Decision/Verdict

The court of arbitration for support have made their ruling on Iannone's case.

They have rejected Iannone's appeal against the original 2 year ban and have upheld WADA's appeal to have the ban increased to 4 years.

So, he's banned for 4 years starting from the 19th December 2019.

For me, this was always going to be the outcome.

The accidental ingestion defence was never going to work for the steroid compound be got caught taking, as it doesn't appear in nature and is not used in cattle farming anywhere (it's not a bulking agent).

WADA's appeal was always going to be upheld as the penalty for this doping violation is clearly laid out as being a 4 year ban.
The FIM are signed up to the WADA code of conduct and they had no business only handing out 2 year ban

What a way to end a career, getting popped for taking a banned cutting compound instead of just dieting and training correctly.
Knowing Iannone, it was more than likely just for aesthetics as well.

His reaction to the verdict was very emotional and emphatic regarding his innocence. It's all very disturbing.

I have hard time believing in his innocence. The type of steroid found in his system was not used in food industry. Most likely he was using it deliberately and stopped too late, thus the residue was detected.

Edit: I do believe though he didn't use it to cheat in motorcycle racing.

Absolutely. I am also strongly of the opinion he wasn’t trying to cheat in the sport.

A victim of his own stupidity/even vanity perhaps, but I see no positives so to speak for anyone in his demise, and he is far from the worst actual premier class gp bike rider there has ever been.
