    And to complete Thursday's Doping Hat Trick, Ricco's house is searched!

    CyclingNews.com

    Around 50 unidentified tablets were uncovered in a police search at the home of Riccardo Riccò (Vacansoleil) last week, according to a report in Italian newspaper Leggo.

    Riccò’s house in Serra Mazzoni near Modena was raided as part of a NAS anti-drugs squad operation that was carried out across central Italy. Officers discovered approximately fifty unmarked and partially crushed tablets, stored loose in a cabinet in Riccò’s house. The tablets were sequestered for analysis and identification in a laboratory in Perugia.
    Personally, I always thought Ricco should have been nicknamed "The Weasel" rather than "The Cobra". If he's busted and kicked out of the sport, I won't shed a tear.

    Meh, could be aspirin.

    I doubt he'd be stupid enough to keep illegal pharmaceuticals at his home after all that's happened.

    I think it would be hilarious if what they confiscated were vitamins, or something innocuous
    a homeopathic like Echinacea

    La Gazzetta dello Sport has leaked photographic evidence collected during the investigation:



    I admit, I should have been clearer in my original post that Ricco is of course innocent until proven guilty, and that what exactly was recovered is undetermined at this time.

    Or, how about the irony if they were vitamins contaminated with a trace of PED?
