Patrik Sinkewitz will be riding for T-Mobile in the coming years. Olaf Ludwig, T-Mobile manager, confirmed that the team has signed a three-year contract with the 24-year-old German who currently rides for Quick.Step. Sinkewitz is preparing to ride his first Tour de France. In a interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) before the signing was announced, Sinkewitz said that he was negotiating with T-Mobile, but not just about money. "It also has to do with my position in the team, my athletic perspective, my personal development. I also want to have my freedom and be able to use it now and then."
