Sinkewitz ready but still team-hunting

Patrik Sinkewitz' doping suspension is nearing its end, and the 27-year-old is preparing to ride again. The problem is, he still has not found a new team. "Everyone praises me for my actions, but 'unfortunately' they don't have anything free at the moment," he told the German news service sid.

Sinkewitz had already crashed out of the Tour de France last summer when it was announced that he had tested positive for testosterone during a pre-Tour training camp. He was subsequently fired by T-Mobile Team . After co-operating with investigators, he received a one-year ban which expires July 17, 2008.
