Henao set to make return at Dauphiné

by CyclingTips

Team Sky’s Sergio Henao, recently cleared of a biological passport investigation by the UCI, is wasting no time in returning to racing. He is taking the start this Sunday at the Critérium du Dauphiné.

In an interview with the site Colombia Sports, he said that he is focused on making the nine-rider squad for the Tour de France.

“There is a month to go now before the Tour de France in which to hit top form. I hope to be on the list of nine.”

Team Sky voluntarily withdrew him from competition on 20 April upon the request of the Cycling Anti-Doping (CADF) while the UCI requested more information and data on his blood levels between 2011 and 2015. At the same time Henao kept busy training at his home in Colombia, hoping the investigation would conclude in time.

“I kept working, kept training, going to the gym, took care of myself,” he said.
