Team Sky has reason to worry ahead of the Giro d'Italia next month. Police pulled one of its race leaders, Italian Morris Possoni, into an investigation of controversial Italian doctor and coach Michele Ferrari when they searched his home yesterday.

Italy's Anti-Narcotics Group (NAS) of Brescia led the search of Possoni's and Diego Caccia's home in Bergamo. A separate NAS branch searched the home of Caccia's team-mate and Italian Champion Giovanni Visconti (Farnese Vini) in Pistoia. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the NAS took planners, contracts and medical reports from the homes. They did not report if they found doping products.
