Danilo Hondo wins legal battle over suspension

cyclingnews.com | Hondo free to race again

Former Gerolsteiner rider Danilo Hondo, has won in civil court what he couldn't in the sports courts: an early end to his suspension.

Hondo was suspended and fired after testing positive for carphedon at the 2005 Vuelta a Murcia. Initially suspended for two years, Hondo's suspension was cut to 1 year in June 2005, then extended to 2 years in January 2006.

Carphedon is the same substance that got Russian biathlete Olga Pyleva stripped of her Olympic silver medal in Turin (oops, Torino).

Hondo says he's been training and is ready to ride.
