    the brain power of these guys is boggling.

    dirty until proven innocent...
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.

    Yeah -- this sounds really good. I'm sure this is the result of some serious thinking.

    “I trust her. If she tells me something, I believe her. I don’t think she tells lies. At least I hope so because otherwise it a mess, especially with a baby involved.”

    “When I was found positive, I confessed everything. I was honest. I hope she does the same. People know I don’t like her racing, you can imagine what I think about her taking anything. Cycling isn’t for women, it hurts too much.”

    “The thing that bothers me is what people will think. I didn’t need this but I can’t go and kill myself. I’m going to carry on training. It’s a strange situation but it’s nothing to do with me. We’ll do the counter-analysis but in the meantime I’ve been splashed all over the newspapers.”


    Are you serious? That is a ringing endorsement of his girlfriend's innocence.

    With support like that...

    Mmmm, remind me again Riccardo- who was it who helped shelter and support you when you were caught? Oh, yes, girlfriend Vania.

    And who was it who bore you a son? Oh, yes, girlfriend Vania.

    And cycling is too hard for women is it? Try childbirth.

    And she's caring for a teething baby whilst you're away from home for three months? The three months that must have included your son's first Christmas that'll be. I think not.

    “The thing that bothers me is what people will think. I didn’t need this ..."

    I am speechless, lost for words. To think only of your weasely little self..........s-l-a-p.

    Aside from the blatent sexism, I can't really see much wrong with what he's saying, yep it's selfish as ****, but he's a professional sportsman, it comes with the territory...

    He's a professional p***k
  • Maybe its an Asterix and Obelix thing. Obelix fell into the magic potion as a baby and presto - superhuman strength.

    Have I got time to put a tenner on at William Hill - Alberto Ricco for all 3 grand tour victories 2030....?

    Come on now. How do you know he is 'only' thinking of himself. We can only read what the journo writes.

  • I'm reading many attacks on Ricco on various forums, but I am at a loss to see what the guy could say, that wouldn't sound somewhat calllous and offensive, to some, or an idictment of his guilt, to others.

    He has to make a statement. He cannot remain mute. All in all, much of what he says, to me, has a ring of honesty.

    Waits for the PC roll eye mob......... :P

  • "Vania Rossi has denied taking EPO CERA but she admitted she breast fed her six-month old son Alberto just before the anti-doping control on January 10.

    Taking CERA during breast feeding is crazy because the drugs is passed on to the baby via the mother’s milk. Mothers should try and avoid taking any medicines, never mind something like CERA…"

    The baby should be taken from her ASAP. How can you do that to your own child????

    Unfortunately, no different from the (far greater) number of mothers who drink, smoke or take recreational drugs during their pregnancies or breastfeeding.

    I think some of the venom directed at the Cobra, for his words, should be directed at Miss Rossi, for her actions.

    Sorry if I appear to be simplistic but if you want to do some real good for the wellfair of children then join the Save the Children fund or relocate to Calcutta and help the street kids there; there are billions of neglected children in the world and the Ricco's are not the worst by far as they are not the best by a long shot.
    Ricco and his lovely wife are in Italy and will be dealt with (if they need to be; as WE do not know the exact situation of the Ricco family) under Italy's penal system.
    There is nothing we can do here to help or to hinder the child so lets draw some perspective.
    I do get annoyed at long distance Victimisation of people in the press or public eye. Many of these people are thashed and kicked about like sub humans when the REAL situation is not completely understood. I like the saying about "walking a mile in someone's shoes" to get to understand the truth.
    If you want to make a child's life better, through the Ricco's apparent neglect, then start with the kids who are closest to you; that is how, at least, you can make a real change. (not saying you're a bad parent but start some Junior's in to the Cycling Club or something; do some good in the world).


    -Jerry

    Thanks VinceEager :D

    PS- I think the Ricco's are a special case as they have chosen to live the life where they value money and glory over their own health as Cera can easily be a killer drug.
    I think most Pros are hugely, seriously nuts.
    I lost all faith in Pro cyclists when (I'm pretty sure) Neil Stephen's said that "he would never dope as he has a loving wife and loving kids" of course, he was caught for doping soon after. Not good Stevo! Not good.

    They can do whatever they want with their own health, but feeding a baby CERA at 6 months old (probably for a while before too) ??

    Would CERA make any difference to breast milk? Any of the science nerds know?

    Sorry that was HGH not CERA? :)

    I don't know for sure, but I would be pretty surprised if it did anything taken orally (as it would be in breast milk) - BNF suggests it is given by injection only.

    Hold on.. you want to make kids' lives better by introducing them to competitive road cycling at a young age?

    Given the state of this sport, Smack would be a better bet!
