Crédit Agricole general manager Roger Legeay resigned Friday from his position as vice president of the AIGCP (International Association of Professional Cyclists), citing difficulties of enforcing the ethics code signed by the teams to combat doping. Legeay is the second leader to resign for the organization after Patrick Lefevere left the president's post, citing the conflict between the UCI and Grand Tour organizers as his reason for quitting.

Legeay's team was one of the founders of the 'Mouvement pour un cyclisme crédible' (Movement for credible cycling, MPCC), and said in a letter to the AIGCP that he felt his position with the association had become "incompatible" with the philosophy of the MPCC, according to AFP.
