The Cofidis Cycling team has been ruled to pay a compensation of 50.000 Euros to Italian rider Massimiliano Lelli, who was sacked by the squad after being suspected of doping in what has been called the "Cofidis case". The Tourcoing court sentence, establishing the illegal dissolution of his contract and damages, was pronounced on November 8, 2005. In August 2004, Lelli was accused of drug abuse by Philippe Gaumont and David Millar. Lelli had been with the team since 1998.
