No team doping at T-Mobile in 2007, Sinkewitz said

Patrik Sinkewitz may have said that there was organized doping on Team T-Mobile during the Tour de France in 2006 but he has also said that it has stopped. In addition, the team issued a statement concerning the charges.

According to Peter Barth, chairman of the German cycling federation's disciplinary committee, told the dpa that Sinkewitz said that "as far as he could tell, the administration of doping at T-Mobile has stopped" as of last season.

T-Mobile spokesman Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews: "The reported comments of Patrik Sinkewitz underline the need for change in cycling and the T-Mobile Team in 2006. When we assumed control of the team for the 2007 season, we made dramatic changes in management, practices and people, and implemented a strong code of conduct and an anti-doping program. These changes continue as we prepare for the 2008 season."
