Crashes for Sinkewitz

By Susan Westemeyer

It may not have been the merriest of Christmases for Patrik Sinkewitz, but he was thankful just to be around to celebrate it. The T-Mobile rider was out driving his Porsche on Christmas Eve when he lost control of the car on a curve on the icy road in Fulda, Germany. He crashed into an electricity distributor and caused an hour-long blackout for the area.

The damage to his car and the distributor was estimated to be about 17,500 Euros.

It wasn't his only crash, either, also crashing with his bike. "I crashed just 500 metres away from the house," he told the Fuldaer Zeitung. "Fortunately I was wearing my helmet."
