Leukemans back in UCI's "whereabouts" system

Björn Leukemans can start thinking of racing again. Last week the Belgian Council of State overturned his suspension on doping charges and indicated that he was able to ride again pending a new hearing. The UCI requested that the Belgian now report his whereabouts for anti-doping controls, and the team has taken this as a positive sign that the sport's governing body has agreed with the ruling.

His manager, Jef van den Bosch, told the belga,"The UCI has given a very important indicator." He added that now that Leukemans is again in the whereabouts system, "There can be no more doubt: Bjorn can and will ride again. He has intensively prepared for this moment for the last six months, and could compete again tomorrow if he wanted to."
