Career[change | change source]

Before 2009, Santambrogio rode for Lampre–NGC. After the 2009 season he changed to BMC Racing Team. In 2010, he was mentioned in the Mantova doping investigation. Later, he was sidelined for a few days by his team. He was again sidelined in 2011 when new evidence showed up.

He made an excellent start to the season. He finished in 6th position overall in Tour de San Luis, 7th overall in Tirreno–Adriatico and winning the GP Industria & Artigianato di Larciano in pouring rain. He was clear of the group with Patrik Sinkewitz, when crashed at a right turn with 2 km (1.2 mi) to go. Later, Santambrogio belted out his way to victory.[1] Santambrogio then finished 2nd overall in Giro del Trentino. At the Giro d'Italia, Santambrogio won Stage 14 after attacking with race leader Vincenzo Nibali. However, Santambrogio's form collapsed and he eventually finished 9th overall.[2]

On 22 October 2014, Santambrogio tested positive for testosterone. He was suspended for three years.[3][4] Santambrogio said he would not seek to return once his suspension has been served.[5]
