Teams slam WADA

Cycling Weekly - - News -

WADA has been crit­i­cised by the Move­ment for Cred­i­ble Cy­cling (MPCC) in an open let­ter, for its con­tin­ued ‘wait and see’ ap­proach to cor­ti­cos­teroids and tra­madol.

Tra­madol is not pro­hib­ited at all un­der cur­rent WADA rules, while cor­ti­cos­teroids are only al­lowed with a ther­a­peu­tic ex­emp­tion cer­tifi­cate. Un­der MPCC rules, which are vol­un­tar­ily ad­hered to by seven World­tour and six pro women’s teams, tra­madol is banned in com­pe­ti­tion, and rid­ers must be with­drawn from com­pe­ti­tion for eight days af­ter be­ing treated with cor­ti­cos­teroids.
