    An Italian court has set an October trial date for 10 cyclists and two
    masseurs involved in a vast doping investigation, which disrupted the
    2001 Giro d'Italia.

    The San Remo court had set an October 27 start date for the trial,
    Italian news agency ANSA said late on Wednesday. The 12 include
    Italian rider Stefano Zanini (Quick Step) and Czech Pavel Padrnos (US
    Postal), both currently taking part in the Tour de France.

    The riders are all accused of having used drugs and doping substances
    and having had performance-enhancing treatments.

    The charges followed a wave of police raids on hotels in the San Remo
    area in northwest Italy where the riders were staying during a Giro
    stopover in June 2001.

    Tour de France officials last week wrote to Italian investigating
    magistrates seeking information on the alleged doping cases involving
    Zanini and Padrnos.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport said on Thursday the two riders could now face
    being excluded from the Tour.
