Riccardo Ricco is in many ways already a sadder story than his star-crossed cycling rival, Marco Pantani. "Il Pirata" died alone of a drug overdose on Valentine's Day just a few years ago.

Sadly though, his drug use caught up to him and he eventually devolved into a shell of his former self, dying alone in a Rimini hotel room.
