The case of the presence of the substance tramadol in two tests of the cyclist Nairo Quintana for which he was expelled from the last Tour de France continues to talk about.
While the boyacense prepares his defense before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) there is a fact that stands out.

Quintana finished sixth in that Tour, but his tests found this medication used to relieve pain.
The substance is prohibited in competition by the International Cycling Union (UCI), but it is not on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), so it is not considered doping.
Today, in the list of sanctioned cyclists of the UCI there are 63 riders, seven of them are Colombians.
The tramadol was prohibited by the rector of cycling since March 1, 2019, since its use can cause serious accidents.
< br>Nairo, from the beginning, has denied that he has taken it, stating that he has never used it in his sports career.
The UCI, according to its regulations, disqualified him from the Tour de France, a test in which he presented the anomaly in his blood tests, something that has given him headaches, since his continuity in the Arkéa-Samsic team would be in suspense because although it was announced that he was renewed for three more years, his continuity with the group has not been signed.
Quintana breaks a statistic with his case of tramadol, because he becomes the first cyclist in the world in violating the norm of its use in a race.
Since the UCI determined to ban tramadol in competition, no irregular case had been presented until in the past Tour de France in the Colombian's two exams this substance was found.
