German Patrik Sinkewitz confirmed he will ride for Team PSK Whirlpool for the coming season. He signed a one-year contract last week with the Czech Professional Continental team.

The 28-year-old served a one-year ban, which ended this summer, for testosterone doping. Authorities gave him a reduced suspension for cooperation.

Sinkewitz, who rode for T-Mobile at the time, said that he had never given up hope of finding a new team in an interview with that appeared on his website, patrik-sinkewitz.com.

"I have always believed in myself and my comeback I made mistakes. I know that and I have to admit it. I have to live with this and cope with it. But don't I also have the right to leave the past behind me and start new again?" (SW)

Stay tuned for a Q&A with Sinkewitz later today.
