Sinkewitz, German federation drop appeals

The ruling against Patrik Sinkewitz has been accepted by both parties and they have both dismissed their appeals of his one-year suspension, the German cycling federation (Bund Deutsche Radfahrer, BDR) announced Thursday.

Sinkeiwtz tested positive for testosterone in an out-of-competition control before the Tour de France last summer, and was given an reduced suspension of one year because he cooperated with investigators. Both the BDR and the 27 year-old appealed the sentence in January.

"Patrik Sinkewitz, who has accepeted his responsibility and cooperated by telling what he knew, can now use this is a basis to look for a new employer," said BDR General Secretary Martin Wolf.
