Following the statements made by Dario Frigo, the Police Chief Jean-Philippe Casano carried out in-depth investigations and testified to the Judges as follows: “The inquiry diligently complies with your instructions allows us to verify and validate the assertions contained in Dario Frigo’s letter , in particular identifying the different protagonists that he puts in question in a doping organization within his old team Fassa Bortolo, now dissolved.” (2006/7 Judicial Police Report).

M. Alain Garnier (A.M.A.) validated Frigo’s statements on the existence of an omerta in the sports world concerning doping practices within teams such as the Fassa Bortolo. (Minutes 2006/7 of the Judicial Police).


In 2005, Frigo had another bad season: as he only won one stage in the Tour de Luxembourg and in July during the Tour de France, he and his wife were stopped by the French police after a ten doses of EPO were found. After being excluded from the Tour de France, he announced his decision to end his career.


2004 was a poor year for Frigo: he was unable to race for three months due to physical problems, and facing a slow and difficult recovery, won no races. In spite of everything, for the second consecutive year he was selected for the World Championships in Verona.


In 2003 he started strong and in the first half of the season he won 6 races: a stage at Paris-Nice, a stage and the final classification both at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and at the Setmana Catalana and a stage in the Giro that placed him in 7th overall.

Cyril Troussard (C.P.L.D) declares: “the method of doping organized within the Fassa Bortolo in 2003, described by Frigo in his letter is comparable with the Festina method” (2006/7 Judicial Police Report).


During the searches of Frigo’s vials with doping substances are found which he owned, although he claimed to have never used them. The next morning Dario did not leave Busto Arsizio because he was fired by his team. Later it turned out that Frigo had also been scammed since the label of those vials didn’t match the product they were supposed to contain. However, Frigo had tried to procure an illicit product and so he was sentenced to a 6-month ban until 8 March 2002.

In the prologue, he finished second to Rik Verbrugghe and after the fourth stage, he took the race lead, which he held for nine days, until losing it to Gilberto Simoni on the 13th stage. The gap between the two, was very small. On 3 June, Frigo won the 15th stage, a time trial. However, Simoni managed to maintain his lead. On 7 June the stage was canceled following the searches of the NAS in the hotels of Sanremo where the teams participating in the Giro used to stay.

Dario Frigo (born 18 September 1973 in Saronno, Italy) is an Italian former professional road bicycle racer.


The Chambery Court, in the reasons for the sentence, states: “The investigations carried out on a rogatory commission have made it possible to give credibility to the architecture of the system denounced by Dario Frigo, that is a practice of doping athletes institutionalized and organized by the Fassa Bortolo team leaders even if the instructor magistrate complained about the absence of any collaboration with the Italian authorities. “The pressures suffered by Dario Frigo to bow to new systematic doping practices institutionalized within his team are clear”. The humiliations and harassment of the Fassa Bortolo executives particularly hit a runner whose physical and psychological health had been fragile for years of doping in a “scandalous system far from sport ethics”. “(Dossier nr. 08 / 00899 of 23/4/09 Chambery Appeal Court).
