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.

Although the case dates back to 2003 and the translations start from 2008 only, with a few exceptions, this case justified an exception in view of its great interest as to the issue of an arbitration clause extended to an individual who had not signed it but was actively involved in the performance of the contract.

 

The opinion is quite long, but it is very interesting and  constitutes required reading.
