Vasseur to sue Tour, team

Eurosport | Barred from Tour, Vasseur decides to sue

Cofidis rider Cedric Vasseur, charged in the ongoing investigation of his team, has plans to sue his team and the Amaury Sport Organisation, the organization that runs the Tour.

Vasseur's attorney told L'Equipe (in French | rough Google translation to English) the team violated French law presuming Vasseur's innocence because ASO pressured the team to leave Vasseur off their Tour squad.

Vasseur won an injunction to race in the French nationals over the weekend, but wasn't allowed to ride.

The case will be heard in Lille tomorrow morning.
