Like he said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time..........on every occasion. Cobra ? Yes he's a snake or maybe a just a wriggling little earthworm. Other dopers must be ashamed of him and his history of failure. I'm sure people laugh about him at doping seminars. Reality TV beckons. He only has to be himself and laughter will be assured.

you must respect the Cobra, a man who can give himself his own nickname. he trancends hubris.

Isn't Stefano Garzelli got this nickname "Cobra" before Ricco did it on himself?

Btw. " It has since been suggested by fellow pro-rider Jérôme Pineau that Riccò openly doped even as a junior rider"

That is so brutal.

Guess who has been caught up in another doping investigation? This time involving anabolic steroids stolen from a Livorno hospital and sold on.

Devastating news, I really believed that he would be turning a new page :o

Riccò has been suspended for doping as a Junior, as a U23 and twice as a pro…

EDIT: he’s been suspended twice as an U23

I still love how Ricco described his doping as "artisan", and being the village cobbler. Awesome.

He should have added "organic" that way he could snag sympathy from the hipsters AND the yuppies.

Riccò record on the Sainte Baume
It started today hunting record uphill from the ' Cobra Formigine 'Riccardo Riccò , who opens the dance of his trip to France with the 'rise to the Sainte Baume . The Cobra has in fact climbed the locality Marseille, theater scene also the Tour de France a few years ago, in 20 minutes and 7 seconds so signing a new record uphill. "Feeling good, I felt good as when I was racing" declares Riccò , and in fact it is the data of your SRM to confirm: 406 watts of average driven for about twenty minutes, which a proportion of its weight of 58kg give a value of 7 watts / kg ... you got it! Performance then nothing short of monstrous than the stage winner of the Three Peaks to the 2007 Giro . Tomorrow there will be a test on Mount Ventoux , where Riccardo having failed to break the record of Iban Maio earlier this year will test the leg in anticipation Friday, the day when weather permitting will try again in the fastest time. See him so determined is just a show, the Cobra really seems to be back to the times of 'gold, when on the climb of the Col d 'Aspin was stronger than the motion of the French television, or when the Presolana in 2008 was going to win the moral victory of Giro , who then had to give in to Alberto Pistolero for just four seconds.

Appointment then at Friday 26, also weather permitting.

The Cobra knows that Tenerife is the place to be, he was also there durning the time span when Sky had their training camp for the Tour.
I could totally see Riccò dressed up like an amateur riding past Froome on a training ride and then going all out just for the lols :D

He would have been busted like he has already been busted numerous times, and disgraced the Tour. 7 w/kg?? come on.. He was glowing like a light bulb.

I dont think anybody would be that stupid to buy from RR.

Well, when I think about it, I would not be surprised at all if there was a moron in our peloton that would be Ricco's customer. Over the years we have seen quite a few "events" that one would not expect.

He could have taken a leaf out of Bernhard Kohl's book, his bike shop is said to be quite good and he seems to have moved on.
