Doping never ends well

Foreseen Tragedy 
A sad but deserved ending to Riccardo Ricco's cycling career. I guess we should have seen this coming. There is nothing worse to be said about Riccardo Ricco than hasn't already been said. This is also a time when I don't care to say more, or post a picture of him, or give more fuel to what I hope is a dying ember. His is one of the worst stories in this sport, now with a tragic ending. He almost killed himself - doping.
