Hondo decision appealed by all parties

The Court of Arbitration for Sports announced today that Danilo Hondo has appealed the sentence handed down by the Disciplinary Chamber of the Swiss Olympic Committee. "Hondo requests CAS to annul the decision made by Swiss Olympic and to exonerate him from any sanction. The International Cycling Union (UCI) on one hand and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on the other hand have also brought the case before CAS. Both entities request an increase of the sanction." The court notes that "as a general rule" it releases in decisions within four months of an appeal being filed.

Hondo tested positive for the stimulant carphedon at the Vuelta a Murcia in March. The German sprinter, who lives in Switzerland, was given a two-year ban, with one year on probation.
