The French Cycling Federation announced in a statement that Jalabert, seriously injured in a road accident last month, had said he did not have enough time for the job any more.

Under his guidance the senior French road cycling team failed to produce any significant performances.

Jalabert, 44, won the 1995 Tour of Spain and the Milan-San Remo classic in the same year. He also won the time trial world championship in 1997.
