Cristian Moreni is out of jail and out of a job. The cyclist was released by the police but will have to undergo more questioning.

Investigating judge Erick Maurel said that Moreni is not being investigated on criminal charges, Sport1.de reports. The investigators are hoping to find out which doping product was used, and if the French prescription medicine laws were violated.

Team Cofidis told Cyclingnews that Cristian Moreni's contract has been ended immediately following his positive A sample in stage 11, in accordance with the teams' 'Code of Conduct.'
