If drugs were legal none of this would be an issue.

What an idiot ... but I guess he doesn't known any other way so he got no choice.

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.

Bernie still wrecks people at Granfondo events, a month ago he won the SuperGiro Dolomiti that starts and finishes in Lienz (232km, 5234m of altitude gain) over 13 min ahead of the 2nd. :D

Ricco is either a major troll who just doesn't care or he's got a serious mental deficit.

In any case, he's not normal.

With a 12 year ban there isn't much left for him to do. He could fade back into obscurity or he could slowly kill himself by being a human lab rat and push his doping cocktail to the absolute limit with complete disregard of not only anti-doping laws, but also health, safety and common sense.

I don't care either way. It's his life to live. He's only hurting himself.

One of the big teams should hire him as a test subject for new drugs.

Ricco, Kohl, Armstrong , all of them ....lets go.

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.

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


Which tells you all you need to know about how "serious" cycling's world bodies are about stamping out doping.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's doing it clean, just for laughs either. He's probably enjoying it a lot more than racing back in the day too.

Riccardo Riccò decidedly turned the page recently.
The long suspension for doping seems accepted: it's time to start a new life.
So the Sassuolo cyclist wed the beautiful Melissa and celebrated in this strange way.

"I'll be 40 when my ban ends in 2023. I'll be competitive. If I was training now, I'd be stronger than ever, I feel it. Some teams want me and if not I'd create my own team. Whatever, sooner or later I'll be back racing,"

Team Ricco? That'll be something to watch! :D

Ricco going at it at 40 would be the most hilarious thing ever.
