In 1996 CARRERA joined the Safilo group, a market leader in sunglasses and prescription frames. At this time Safilo started producing ski masks and helmets, presenting CARRERA’S innovative, advanced products in this market as well.

‘Great enthusiasm for sports and the desire to be number one – always’ is the philosophy behind CARRERA. Over fifty years of victories in the most exciting sports is proof of the commitment that CARRERA, through its glasses, masks and ski helmets, devotes to innovation and research for winning performance.

Riccardo Riccò tested positive in Tour de France

Teammates of Riccardo Riccò (Saunier Duval-Scott) chat on the start line, on July 17 2008 in Lavelanet, before the 168,5 km twelfth stage of the 2008 Tour de France cycling race run between Lavelanet and Narbonne. The Saunier Duval team has voluntarily withdrawn itself from the Tour de France, and said it would not compete in any races until further notice.

A mechanic carries the bicycle of Riccardo Riccò into the Saunier-Duval cycling team bus, on July 17 2008 in Lavelanet, before the 168,5 km twelfth stage of the 2008 Tour de France cycling race run between Lavelanet and Narbonne.

The Tour de France was rocked by a third positive doping scandal following the news that Italian Riccardo Riccò tested positive for banned substances.

Italian rider Riccardo Riccò of Saunier Duval has tested positive for blood booster Erythropoietin (EPO). According to French sports daily L'Equipe, one of the climber's urine samples collected by the French Anti-Doping Agency AFLD showed traces of a third generation EPO called CERA (Continuous Erythropoietin Receptor Activator).

The Saunier Duval team has voluntarily withdrawn itself from the Tour de France, and said it would not compete in any races until further notice. Directeur sportif Joxean Fernandez Matxin said he was as surprised as anybody. "We only found out ten minutes ago. The entire team will stop racing, not only in the Tour de France. We suspend the activities of the team until we understand what has happened."

Riccò, who won two stages in the Tour de France (the sixth and ninth), was ninth on general classification before the news broke on Thursday morning. The Italian's impressive performances have in the past been explained by his naturally high hematocrit level.
The Italian from Spanish team Saunier Duval was part of a targeted group of riders. Since the start of the race in Brest, the AFLD performed numerous anti-doping tests on him, at least four according to L'Equipe.

At the start of stage 12 from Lavelanet to Narbonne, Riccò was taken from his team bus into a team car, which took him to the police station. Cyclingnews' Gregor Brown confirmed that the Italian was taken into police custody for questioning.

Fernandez described the final moments before Riccò was driven off. "He sat in the team bus and was not able to say anything. We didn't want to make a scene with the police. They let us drive him away in the team car. A police officer accompanied him in the car."

Following the positive test of Riccò, the Special "Cobra" Exowind is no more available from RudyProject. This make this "Cobra" edition extremely hard to get now...

New releases at the Tour de France

George Hincapie and Thor Hushovd was spotted wearing this all-new RacingJacket. Oakley says the new Racing Jacket has a 'floating' lens, meaning that it is held in place by a unique suspension system that exerts less pressure on the lens than usual. This, says Oakley, produces less distortion and makes for easier lens swapping via a unique quick- release system built into the pivoting nosepiece.
