Cofidis sponsorship in jeopardy

Procycling.com | Cofidis to turn away from cycling?

Procycling.com quotes Cofidis team owner François Migraine: "the chances of Cofidis renewing its contract beyond 2005 are diminishing."

Certainly, the publicity the telephone card company has received from the ongoing drug probe of current and former Cofidis riders has been almost uniformly negative.

...after Philippe Gaumont’s recent statements about doping to French daily Le Monde and the news last week that Cédric Vasseur and Médéric Clain are being investigated by French police, Migraine’s patience seems to be running out.

Speaking to Reuter before the Tour of Flanders, Cofidis team manager Alain Bondue commented: "With the way things are going, I wonder whether we will even reach the end of this contract."
