Riccò out of the Tour!

Kiss him goodbye

Kiss him goodbye

Stopped by French Police at the Start of Stage 12

As Cyclingnews.com is reporting, Riccardo Riccò is out of the Tour de France after new doping allegations.

A sad story for the rider, the entire professional category, and especially the cycling star system. I’m watching the stage on Italian tv at a bar in Cuneo right now and the commentators are shocked: “Whenever we begin to enjoy a rider…”

The only funny aspect is that, by leaving a big race like this, he has achieved his goal of following in the footsteps of Marco Pantani sooner than anyone thought.
