A four-year disqualification. Definitely a low blow for Andrea Iannone because, as of today, his career is likely to come to an end at the age of 31.
The rider from Vasto expressed his personal opinion on the CAS’s ruling. He did so through a post on Instagram:
“Today I suffered the greatest injustice I could receive.
They ripped my heart out by separating me from my great love.
The reasons are without a logical sense and with wrong facts. There’ll be an appropriate place and time for this... because I certainly will not give up.
I knew I was facing the powers that be, but I was still hoping.
I was hoping for intellectual honesty and the affirmation of justice.
At this moment, I’m suffering as never have.
But whoever tried to destroy my life will soon understand how much strength I have in my heart.”
