At issue was an award issued by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the matter of a Luxembourg racing cyclist who entered into a self-employment agreement in 2010 with a company managing a cycling team. Furthermore, an agreement on image rights gave the team the right to exploit the cyclist’s image against compensation. When he was found positive in a doping control during the 2012 Tour de France, the cyclist left the competition whilst continuing to train with the team.
