Sinkewitz posts blood values online

Patrik Sinkewitz has posted his first blood values online, from three tests conducted by the International Cycling Union (UCI) in September and October 2008. The data is available for viewing on his website, patrik-sinkewitz.com.

"Of course I have been tested more often," he noted, but the other tests were done by either the World Anti-Doping Agency or the National Anti-Doping Agency, neither of which publishes the test results.

Sinkewitz, who now rides for the Czech Professional Continental Team PSK-Whirlpool-Author, tested positive for testosterone during his preparations for the 2006 Tour de France.

The German rider also announced that he was recovering from an intestinal infection and had flown to the Canary Islands for training, in order to make up for the training time he had missed. Sinkewitz will start his season at the Ruta del Sol, February 15-19.
