Ok, we really don't need a thread for every doper that's coming back. Not to mention, this guy's been back for the entire season, and despite doing nothing at all, has been one of the most talked about riders on this forum during the time.

Who is Ricco?
If Denkoff is thinking "why Vino and not Ricco", "why Vino and not Schumaher" - then here is the answer - Vino has made himself a name and he's got impressive palmares, even if he doped - he is an interesting conversation subject.

When Ricco achieves the same - he and his doping life will be interesting to discuss.

This makes no sense. Ricco is one of the most well known riders in the world. He's arrogant, aggressive, and to top it off, spectacular. You can't help but be intrigued by what he will do next, much like Vino. Ricco is one of the most interesting topics in cycling, and his doping past just compounds. Doping doesn't make you less talked about, it makes you more talked about. (Unfortunately)

2 stages in the Settimana Lombarda, a stage in the Giro del Trentino and 2stages + general in Osstereicher rundfarht. not so bad I think? Yes of course they're not the biggest races in the world but he won none the less.

You gotta love a guy who made up his own nickname...I think we should call him "Koko the monkey" in honor of that.

I know, but for the amount of attention he's getting, you would think he had won the Tour and the Giro this year.

Are you serious? He actually named himself The Cobra? What a tool.

I guess in his defense he probably saw what happened to Cunego and didn't want to take any chances.

Agreed, because if left to the press and the fans he would undoubtedly end up as, "Piccolo Douchebag Ciclismo".

Ricco

I hesitate even to mention Ricco's name, because any mention of this disgusting cretin is too much. The least any sane and serious cycling fan can do is to boycott Quickstep products, not to forget, unfortunately, Eddy Merckx bikes, BBB products, etc.

I'm a really big fan!! but When I saw this post I was really upset...

1st. Denkoff english sux big time... Sorry but you should practice more mate... was funny the first time but some times I don't get the idea of your posts :(
2nd. This post is meaninless... you can't only put images = /
3rd. No info? No Bio? No Palmares? You are not a real fan...
4th. What is the sense of having posts for every rider who come back? or win a race or an stage? I think that we should be more serious... but there is some exceptions like "Bauke Mollema's thread" cuz is a forum joke... Riccó is an awesome rider with TONS of talent but is not his time to have a post like this yet...

Bah... I'm still pretty sad and upset with this post... Riccó deserves more... :(
