Danilo Hondo's appeal of his suspension for doping is scheduled to be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland on November 8, according to the Lausitzer Rundschau newspaper. He tested positive twice in March 2005 during the Tour of Murcia for the drug Carphedon.

Hondo was given a two-year suspension, with one year's probation, and a fine of 64,100 Euro in June. The former Gerolsteiner sprinter, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the UCI all appealed the sentence, with the latter two insisting on a full two-year suspension.
