Appeal unlikely for Hondo

Danilo Hondo will probably accept his one year suspension handed down by the Swiss Cycling Federation and not appeal to the CAS, according to his attorney Michael Lehner. "That kind of appeal would take another three to four months and wouldn't help him get back on the bike any faster," said Lehner. However, he wants to make sure that Hondo will be able to participate in the Pro Tour again when his suspension ends in April 2006. Lehner is also optimistic that the UCI will accept the Swiss decision. "I'm not worried about that."
