The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) announces that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has dismissed the appeal filed by Mr. Nicola Ruffoni against the decision rendered by the UCI Anti-Doping Tribunal on 14 December 2017. The CAS confirmed that Mr. Ruffoni committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation and upheld the four-year sanction imposed on him.

The matter resulted from the analysis of a sample collected in the scope of out-of-competition control on 25 April 2017, which revealed the presence of GH-Releasing Peptides (GHRPs).
