Groupama-FDJ has accepted the resignation of Georg Preidler after his confession of using blood doping.

The French team commented that the rider presented a "spontaneous and immediate" resignation on the third of March. Hours later, the Austrian confessed the use of blood doping to the media of his home country.

"Given the seriousness of the facts and in total opposition to the ethical principles still defended by the team and its sponsors Groupama and FDJ, Marc Madiot (General Manager) took note of his resignation and made it effective immediately," said the team through a press note.

Groupama-FDJ also affirmed that they have already contacted several organisations like the UCI, the MPCC and the French Anti-Doping Agency to inform them about the case and to reiterate its commitment to the transparency and the fight against doping.
