Saunier Duval's Riccardo Riccò will be spending more time on his bike in the future. The speedy Italian was clocked going 200 k/hr in his Porsche Cayenne along the Adriatic coast this week, costing him his driving license.

Riccò won the queen stage of the Giro d'Italia in 2007. The 24 year-old turned pro with Saunier Duval in 2006.

The team's website, www.saunierduval-scott.com, notes that "He's both an impressive climber and can rub shoulders with fast men, too." No doubt team management will suggest he limit his speed to two wheels instead of four.
