Iannone – also B-test positive

As reported, a blood sample from MotoGP rider Andres Iannone tested positive for doping. The rehearsal came from the racing weekend in Malaysia. Iannone requested analysis of the B sample because he is not aware of any guilt.

In the meantime, the B sample has been evaluated and residues of the substance nandrolone have also been found there. It is a steroid that affects protein build-up in the muscles and the development of male genital organs. However, a large muscle build-up is counterproductive for MotoGP riders because they must not put too much weight on the scales.


Iannone’s lawyer clarifies that only a small amount of the steroid has been found, so there is a possibility that it was accidentally ingested from eating Asian meat.

There will be a hearing on the case soon. Iannone faces a 4-year ban.

Andrea Iannone told La Gazzetta delo Sport: “I have no plan B, motorcycles are my life. I am not an idiot who risks everything. I just want to get back on my Aprilia as quickly as possible and forget it all. It feels as if it were a bad film and I was the main actor. “
