CareerEdit

Iglinsky turned professional in 2005 with Domina Vacanze and rode for Team Milram in 2006. Iglinsky won stage 6 of the 2007 Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré. He is the elder brother of Valentin Iglinsky.

In spring 2012, he prevailed in one of the Ardennes Classic races, Liège–Bastogne–Liège. He broke away from the chasing group with Joaquim Rodríguez (Team Katusha), subsequently dropping him and flying by race leader Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas–Cannondale) with one kilometer to go to win solo.[1]

He was provisionally suspended in October 2014 after testing positive for EPO in August 2014.[2] His brother Valentin Iglinsky was suspended on 10 September for testing positive, also in August 2014.[3] Maxim Iglinsky received a two-year ban, dating from the publication of the positive test, expiring 30 September 2016.
