Press release

Team Arkéa-Samsic has taken note of the notification from the UCI received by Nairo Quintana informing him of the presence of Tramadol in two dried blood samples collected during the last Tour de France.

The UCI Medical Regulations provide for a ban on the use of Tramadol in competition for medical reasons from 1 March 2019.

Furthermore, this breach of the UCI Medical Regulations does not result in a suspension for the rider.

The Arkea-Samsic team will make no further comment.
