    The definitive Gonchar/Honchar name thread

    Here is what he said in a recent interview:

    "One of the side-benefits of Gonchar's two stage wins and stint in the yellow jersey was that he got his name back. A typing error on his passport condemned him to being referred to as 'Honchar' for years."

    Now you know the rest of the story.

    But how is his first name really spelled? I've seen 4-5 variations of that too.
    In search of what to search for.
