This opinion of the Federal Tribunal of March 10, 2010, is related to sport arbitration, which nowadays tends to become the main “provider” of appeals to the Swiss Federal Tribunal. This is due to the fact that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is based in Lausanne (Switzerland). Also, there are numerous sport arbitrations, some of which inevitably find their way to the Federal Tribunal, including some cases in which it is clear that an appeal should not have been filed at all.

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.
