Michael Rasmussen looks set to challenge his suspension in the Court of Arbitration for Sport on November 14, according to a statement by the legal institute in Lausanne issued Tuesday.
On July 1 this year the former Rabobank rider was suspended by the cycling federation of Monaco for two years, the ban retroactively dated to July 2007. During last year's Tour de France the Dane was ejected from the race by his team management for misleading authorities about his whereabouts in relation to out-of-competition testing.
He was sacked by the Dutch team following the Tour and the winner of King of the Mountains classification at the 2005 and '06 Tours de France subsequently sued for damages. The day after his suspension was imposed, Rabobank was forced to pay him 700,000 euro as a result of civil proceedings against the team.
