Former T-Mobile rider Patrik Sinkewitz denied giving any names to prosecutors in the case of the doping alleged to have taken place at the Freiburg University Clinic. The German news magazine Focus reported that both Sinkewitz and his former girlfriend have given detailed information to investigators.
In an audio interview on muax.de he said, "I only spoke about my own case, and I can't say where people get these names," Sinkewitz said. Focus reported that Sinkewitz gave names of those who, like him, went to the Freiburg University Clinic on the evening of the first day of the Tour de France 2006, including, allegedly, Andreas Klöden.
Freiburg chief prosecutor Wolfgang Maier would not confirm the Klöden naming, but told the dpa press agency that the findings from the case would not be released until February.
Werner Franke, the German anti-doping crusader, told the magazine, "I cannot understand why Klöden has not yet been called to testify."
