DopingEdit

On August 12, 2016 the UCI announced that Kléber Ramos had tested positive for CERA on 31 July 2016.[1] Ramos had competed in the Olympic Games road race. On November 17 the UCI announced Ramiro Rincon Diaz and João Gaspar has also tested positive for CERA. These positive tests constituted the teams second and third AAFs within a twelve-month period and as a result, the UCI moved to suspend the team under Anti Doping Rule, article 7.12, Suspension of a Team Registered with the UCI.[2] In December 2016, the team was suspended for 55 days, due to the three doping positives within a 12-month period.[3]

In March 2017 Brazilian rider Alex Correia Diniz was provisionally suspended due to an adverse biological passport finding, with fellow Brazilian Otavio Bulgarelli being provisionally suspended for "tampering".[4] With the teams previous ban expiring on February 12, the team now faces a potential ban of between 15 days to 12 months. In May, the team were banned for a second time for 35 days from 15 July to 19 August.[5]
