Honchar vs Gonchar explained

So that's why the press alternately referred to T-Mobile TT supremo Gonchar as "Honchar"...
from Cyclingnews:

"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. The fame that Tour success brings finally allowed him to set the record straight, "Yeah! In the last few years, people got used to calling me Honchar, especially in Italy, but that is not my name," he said."
