Stefan Schumacher's comeback runs into a setback

Hoped for return to racing on the same day his suspension runs out pushed back due to paperwork delays

The comeback of disgraced doping sinner, Stefan Schumacher, has been delayed. The former Gerolsteiner captain had hoped to mark his return to professional cycling with the Giro dl Veneto on August 28th, the same day his suspension finished.

Unfortunately for Schumacher and his new Miche team, the paperwork for his return did not go through quickly enough, so he'll have to wait a little while longer to return to racing. For Schumacher, the news was doubly frustrating, as he was in the car en route to Padua.

"At first, I was really pissed off, because I'm of course hot to get back to racing again, but then I told myself… I have waited so long now, what is one week more?"

According to Schumacher, who tested positive for CERA-EPO at both the 2008 Tour de France and the Beijing Olympics, his name has not yet officially appeared on the Miche team roster with the UCI, thus causing the delay.

The winner, and later loser, of both time trials at the 2008 Tour de France has signed a deal with Miche to take him through to the end of the 2010 season with an option to continue in 2011.
