The fence is closed by Nairo Quintana
“The sports section of The Telegraph may reveal that Tramadol is close to being included as a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of prohibited substances, according to a recommendation from the organization's executive committee that would be given at a meeting this Friday,” reports the British newspaper in a note signed by Ben Rumsby, the outlet's director of sports research.
According to the article, the measure would take place after the former English soccer player Chris Kirkland confessed that he was close to taking his own life after his addiction to that substance and the case of Nairo Quintana, who was identified with the substance in his blood, during tests carried out in competition by the UCI.
Now, if the inclusion of tramadol on the WADA list is confirmed, its use would not be permitted as a drug out of competition .

“The monitoring program includes substances that are not on the prohibited list, but that the organization wishes to monitor to detect its improper use in sport“, WADA would have said, according to 'The Telegraph'.
So far, the Agency has not issued any statement in this regard. The truth is that they are over meetings to review the banned substances on your list for the coming year.
