Andrea Iannone Switch To Reality TV With Italy’s Dancing With The Stars

Andrea Iannone is set to embark on a new challenge on reality television as one of Italy’s Dancing With The Stars contestants.

The former Aprilia rider is currently serving a 4-year ban after failing a doping test at the 2019 Malaysian GP.

The ban means Iannone is prohibited from competing from anything two-wheels which could have been the primary factor behind his decision on trying something new.

This is the first time a MotoGP rider will be seen as a reality television star after Carl Fogarty famously appeared in ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’, and Jorge Lorenzo was revealed as one of the finalists of ‘Masked Singer’ in Spain.

Iannone was first hit with an 18-month ban after failing his doping but the sentence was extended to four years after losing his appeal at the Court Arbitration of Sport (CAS) in November 2020.

A passionate football fan and anything two-wheels. He likes to commute on his 150cc scooter on a daily basis and occasionally takes a long trip with his 750cc machine just to "tapau" his favourite "roti canai". With a journalism background, he likes to write as much as he rides.
