There has now been a call for an investigation into the Chinese, not just for doping but for the use of genetic manipulation.

Riccardo “Cobra” Ricco, an Italian cyclist, is in hospital with kidney failure after he allegedly gave himself a blood transfusion with a three week old sample. Sheez, I wouldn’t even touch three week old bread for goodness sakes. Anywho, serious concerns are now being raised about “doping” within the Vacansoleil-DCM team. Ricco was banned from cycling for 20 months in 2008 after testing positive for a blood booster during the Tour de France and was on the comeback trail. If found guilty of doping Ricco may face three years jail. He currently remains in a serious condition in hospital.
