Ricco's partner Rossi tests positive for CERA

Riccardo Ricco's partner Vania Rossi has tested positive for doping.
The Italian Olympic Committee says the blood-booster CERA was found in Rossi's system after she finished second in the Italian cyclecross championships on Jan. 10 in Segrate, near Milan.
It's the same substance Ricco was caught using at the 2008 Tour de France after winning two mountain stages.
The couple had a son, Alberto, born in July.
Ricco's 20-month ban is due to expire March 19.
