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