At a Disciplinary and Appeals Committee hearing on Wednesday 8th May 2002, Robert Tighello was found guilty of an offence which occurred on Saturday 24th March 2002 during the Carnegie Caulfield Cycling Club Criterium.
Robert was suspended for 3 months for this offence. Furthermore, the Committee considered that upon conviction, the previously suspended penalty of 3 months imposed on the 4th September 2001 was automatically invoked.
Therefore, the result is that the licence of Robert Tighello is suspended form the date of notification to him (by email) until 8th November 2002.
Cycling Australia has been notified and in turn will notify the UCI. Robert Tighello has the right of appeal to Cycling Australia.
