Riccardo Riccò has described the UCI-funded Cycling Independent Reform Commission (CIRC) as a joke after speaking to the doping investigators for seven hours but failing to get a reduction to his 12-year ban.

WTH? Check out the closing line in the article. :eek:

“I wouldn't make the same mistakes that I made. I wouldn't dope, or I'd at least do it differently.”
I was thinking the exact same thing. So much for caring about any records he might set...

No one told him CONI had the final say on any reduction before he went to CIRC? Maybe he should try reading the rules of the game before he starts playing.

This was one instance of how this works.

Obviously, the guy is not loved by the UCI, so no one on the federation side would ever campaign for him at CONI. When the issue of Armstrong's ban comes up, it will be interesting to see if there's a different outcome. At minimum, USAC will be pushing very hard for the reduction.

"It seems the rules are applied and interpreted depending on who you are.”

That sounds like the UCI we know. More "dark forces" making undocumented decisions.

Francesco Reda, Mauro Santambrogio both got deals and Ricco did not. Is the process by which they got reduced sanctions public information? I would imagine the UCI has a powerful role in determining the reductions, but I'm not certain about the details.

Ricco, not the smartest of dopers but when he was with SD riding the tour I really enjoyed watching him. He was so obviously doping and just seemed to be playing around on the tour climbs. It was entertaining stuff:D
The fact that we have a peloton with busted riders still racing then I have no problem with him racing again same for JTL. I hope someone is keeping an eye on him. The urge to dope is strong in Ricco like it was for his ex wife.
I hope he can stay healthy. I doubt clean he will brake any records. Johnny Hoogerland said that they used to drop Ricco on the climbs and that he turned up for training and blew them all away i.e. doped. He's obviously a good responder. I say good luck to him.

“I don't watch cycling much on television, it's pretty boring. Things are cleaner now but not totally clean. There's still total hypocrisy, some teams are still protected,” Riccò said, refusing to offer any further details to Cyclingnews to back up his accusations.
Just goes to show that there is no justice in cycling really. Ricco gets banned for life even though he was just one doper out of many, meanwhile the dawg is allowed to dope by the UCI and will never test positive.
