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 this link
Under this new procedure, alcohol tests were carried out by breath testing on 1 April 2017 in Leon, Mexico and on 15 April in Pietramurata, Italy during the FIM MXGP/MX2 World Championship events. The following riders were tested:
