Patrik Sinkewitz had hoped to return to racing at the Mallorca Challenge next week, but now has to postpone his return until the end of the month. Although Sinkewitz is eager to return to racing after the end of his doping suspension, his team will not be participating in the Mallorca race series.

"I would have liked to ride the Mallorca tour, but it didn't work out," the 28-year-old told the dpa press agency. He will make his debut with Team PSK Whirlpool in a one-day race near Lugano, Switzerland, at the end of February, before his first stage race, the Vuelta a Murcia from March 4-8.

"I have trained a long time and feel fit, I am hot and want to know where I stand," Sinkewitz said.

Sinkewitz tested positive for testosterone before the Tour de France 2007, and since he cooperated with authorities, received only a one-year ban, which ended July 17, 2008.
