I guess as a former doper he won't be allowed to compete under the neutral flag or as "OAR". And even if he is able to become a Cypriot citizen before the Olympics: they didn't qualify anyway.

I thought I had read somewhere that he was going to be allowed to ride under the neutral flag.  Because he was under the cycling testing regime, and not under the Russian ADA testing ... or something.

It does strike me as something that he would be able to appeal if they prevented it.  He has served his time once, was kept out of the last olympics also because of a previous offence and now (according to him) they want to punish him a third time for the same offense.
