Doping incident mars Tour de France 2008: Riccardo Ricco is out

Riccardo Ricco is out of the Tour de France. He tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) and his team, Saunier-Duval, has pulled out of the Tour. Ricco won two mountain stages in this year’s Tour and wore the red peas jersey until today.

In today’s stage from Lavelanet to Narbonne, Mark Cavendish came in first, but Cadel Evans retained his overall lead and remains the holder of the yellow jersey. Wim Vansevenant is still the Lanterne Rouge and if he ends the Tour as the Lanterne Rouge, that makes it three years in a row – a record!
