Mori banned from Tirreno-Adriatico
Italian cyclist Massimiliano Mori is out of the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race after breaking anti-doping rules.

The Formaggi Pinzolo team member tried to pass off a urine sample, supplied by the team's doctor, as his own to the race's medical inspectors.

Alessia's Italian rider Ruggero Marzoli won Monday's fifth stage of the race.

The 26-year-old sprinted to victory ahead of Luca Paolini, Michael Boogerd, Danilo di Luca, Oscar Freire and overall leader Paolo Bettini.

Bettini, the defending World Cup champion, holds a one-second lead over second-placed compatriot Paolini.

And there was no repeat of the icy conditions which saw Sunday's stage abandoned.

Tuesday's penultimate sixth takes the riders from Teramo to Torricella Sicura.
