Gerolsteiner considers suit against Sinkewitz

Hans-Michael Holczer, team manager of Team Gerolsteiner, said that he is considering a lawsuit against Patrik Sinkewitz, who recently tested positive for testosterone. "We are looking at how accountable we can make him," Holczer said in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung. "I won't make any claims now, but my attorney is definitely investigating what possibilities there are. Because we are in Germany, Sinkewitz is in Germany, we have a clear legal situation."

The 53 year-old Holczer also said that "I wish for nothing more than the comparison of the 600 DNA samples of all the pro cyclists with the blood bags in Spain from the Puerto affair. The traditional system of cycling is: Shut up and sit tight. But that doesn't bring us any further."
