Team Sky supporting Sergio Henao with anti-doping case

Team Sky says it is supporting Sergio Henao while he submits information for his biological passport case to the various anti-doping bodies.

The Cycling Anti Doping Foundation notified Henao of a potential anti-doping rule violation and was given 20 days to respond. That deadline was Monday.

“We are currently working with Sergio to finalise the submission of his response to the UCI,” a spokesperson for the team told Cyclingnews on Monday.

“He will not be part of our race programme whilst this process is ongoing, but we continue to fully support Sergio and look forward to his return to racing.”

Team Sky had previously made his biological passport the subject of discussion when it  temporarily suspended him from competition. It followed a March 2014 story by La Gazzetta dello Sport, which reported that the Colombian had been sidelined due to unexplained blood readings.
