Painkiller use pops up again

Well I dont agree at all that its a doping issue.   Tramadol is a pain killer ... thats pretty much it.   If you can use codeine and NSAIDS (Ibuprofen etc) and paracetamol there is no issue with tramadol.

Its not performance enhancing - except to help a rider get through the pain.

Yes - the use of painkillers is an issue - and its one that they need to address.  The use of painkillers every day or on a regular basis is a health issue.  Most of those drugs are addictive and not good for you to be having all the time.  But it isnt performance enhancing.
