Matteo Rabottini (born 14 August 1987) is an Italian racing cyclist, who last for UCI Continental team Meridiana–Kamen.[3]


He was provisionally suspended by the UCI in September 2014 following an adverse analytical finding for EPO in a test taken in August 2014.[4] He was dropped from the Italian World Championships team.[5] In May 2015 UCI announced on their website that Rabottini was banned for two years, with a cut of 3 months for "Substantial Assistance in Discovering or Establishing Anti-Doping Rule Violations".[6] The ban ended on 6 May 2016.[7][8] He joined Meridiana–Kamen upon the conclusion of the ban.
