The court has cleared him to ride, the UCI has said that he can ride, and Swiss Cycling has given him a license to ride - but Danilo Hondo is still not riding races. Why not? Because he still hasn't got a contract with a team. His latest plan was to appear as a "guest rider" at Rund um Köln on Easter Monday, but the race management has nixed the idea. "Our race has 1.1 status. Mixed teams may not start," explained the race's technical director.
