Sinkewitz guests at Deutschland Tour presentation

Quick.Step rider Patrik Sinkewitz will be the special guest at the presentation of the Deutschland Tour (Tour of Germany) today. This year's event is scheduled for August 15-23 as part of the UCI's top-level ProTour series.

Sinkewitz won last year's edition and says he will be back for this year's race. "For me it's an honor to be invited to this presentation, he said in a team statement. "This year the Deutschland Tour will start in August. My physical condition in that period will depend a lot on the races that I will do before August, but surely I will take part [in] the race to defend the victory of last year."
