New alcohol Procedure in FIM World Championships & Prizes

Pressemelding fra FIM 

The use and consumption of alcohol (ethanol) had been officially prohibited in competition under the WADA rules, incorporated into the FIM Anti-Doping Code, since 2004. 

However, as from 2015, WADA agreed that the FIM could henceforth consider alcohol as no longer prohibited as a doping agent but as a substance prohibited for safety reasons under with the FIM Medical Code. The FIM Anti-Doping Code and Medical Code were modified accordingly. 

You can find the FIM Alcohol Testing procedure as set out in Appendix V of the 2017 FIM Medical Code, including the applicable sanctions, at the link below:

All the test results were negative.
