Ricco says EPO test needs tightening!

Riccardo Ricco has admitted to the Italian Olympic Committee that he used EPO and has surrendered his right to have the B sample tested. In a surprising move he complained that the testing procedure needs more work saying that only two of his ten tests had returned a positive result! As I understand it Ricco thought that the new style EPO was undetectable and  presumably he felt no need to use the usual anti-detection methods and yet it would seem there is a only a one in five chance of being caught.  He  is  not wrong  that  more  work  is  needed.

  1. I found him very arrogant, but, you have to give him some credit for owning up rather than making up pathetic excuses. Maybe he is hoping to come back into the pro scene in a couple of years.
