There is a "99 percent chance" that Patrik Sinkewitz will return to the professional peloton in the coming season. The German rider was suspended for the use of testosterone after an out-of-competition test before the 2007 Tour de France.

According to Radsportnews, the 27 year-old is currently in "close contact" with three Professional Continental teams and one ProTour team.

Sinkewitz cooperated with authorities after his positive doping control and was therefore given only a one-year suspension, which ended in July 2008. He allegedly told German authorities that during the 2006 Tour de France he and other team T-Mobile members went to the University of Freiburg Clinic for illegal blood transfusions.
