Ricco bust aided by drug maker: WADA – Cycling – Yahoo! Sports
CANBERRA, Australia (AP)â€”Riccardo Riccoâ€™s blood doping case on the Tour de France was uncovered because of a molecule planted in the banned substance by the drug manufacturer, World Anti-Doping Agency chief John Fahey said Wednesday.
Ricco, 24, won two stages before he was expelled from the Tour last week when his positive test for the blood-booster EPO was confirmed by the French anti-doping agency.
Fahey said Roche Pharmaceuticals placed a molecule in its product CERAâ€” Continuous Erythropietin Receptor Activatorâ€”when developing the drug to help anti-doping authorities detect illegal use.
â€œI canâ€™t tell you the details of how he was detected,â€ Fahey told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio. â€œI can indicate the particular substance is called CERA â€¦ which is a perfectly legitimate substance to deal with anemia.

PingMag – Audium: See With Your Ears
Now imagine yourself seated in a pitch-dark room being flooded with multiple layers of soundscapes wrapping around your bodyâ€¦ and 174 speakers guide you into a heaven of noise, composed by Mr. Shaff himself.
Funny, had to find out about this sound theater in San Francisco from a Japanese magazine… to be visited (I think I am playing a couple of solo shows in San Fran next May)
