Italian cyclist, 1998 Tour de France winner, found dead on February 14, 2004 in a hotel at 9:30 PM in Rimini, Italy. Tranquilizers were found by his side, but it was later revealed that he died of acute cocaine poisoning. Maybe he has been assassinated: this hypothesis is still in question.
In 1998, he won the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France back to back, the first Italian to accomplish the feat, and he became a major star. In 1999, he was disqualified when it was found that he had been using performance enhancing drugs. He won two stages of the Tour de France in 2000. Pantani was also banned in 2002 for using insulin during the previous year's Giro.
He rode in the 2003 Giro, finishing 14th, and subsequently checked into a clinic in early 2003 for treatment for his depression. He emerged after two weeks. He had become increasingly withdrawn, and he told fans in the fall, "Forget about Pantani the cyclist."
