Team Milram manager Gianluigi Stanga is under pressure. After the allegations of Jörg Jaksche, Stanga was accused by former Colpack rider Ruggiero Torraco. Torraco made the accusations against Stanga to the state
prosecuter of Padua a few years ago and was quoted by Italian daily sports Gazzetta dello Sport: "As I was signed by the Stanga
team [Colpack], they forced me to buy epo and growth hormones."
Ruggiero Torraco also told the state prosecuter that the PED's were made avaible for the whole team. Until
now, these accusations were without consequences for Stanga but after the allegations of Jörg Jaksche about his time with
Stanga's Polti team this could change. Ettore Torri, chief of CONI's anti-doping commission asked for the old files now and
told reporters he will examine them. Torri is considering to open a a case against Stanga.
Stanga repeated his reaction on the allegations of Jörg Jaksche: "It's all not true. I was always a clean
official." Nordmilch AG, the current sponsor of Stanga's Milram team will speak with Stanga
about possible consequences in the coming days.
