Riccò Dumps Rossi
What a guy! Riccardo Riccò has totally distanced himself from his girlfriend, Vania Rossi, and mother of their 7 month old son, saying, "I'm disappointed with my girlfriend and there can be no reconciliation until Vania is shown to be innocent of the allegations that were raised." Riccò himself is nearing the end of an eighteen month suspension for his own use of CERA, the same substance which his cyclocrossing girlfriend recently tested postive for.
This occurs after Riccò's team, Ceramica Flaminia, was the only Italian Pro Continental team not to be invited to any of the big Italain races on the calendar for March. Rumors were also swirling that the team was not going to be invited to the Giro d'Italia.
