Sinkewitz to make statement

After suffering a serious crash and a positive doping control in the same week, Patrik Sinkewitz has indicated that he will give a statement on the charges against him "in the next few days," he said on his website, patrik-sinkewitz.com. The German rider was suspended by T-Mobile Team after the announcement of his positive A-test for testosterone, shortly after a crash with a spectator after a Tour de France stage sent him to the hospital with serious injuries. After facial surgery this week, he has been released from the hospital and he "is doing well under the circumstances and wants to first consult with his attorney over how to proceed."

His attorney, Michael Lehner, who also represents Danilo Hondo, Jörg Jaksche and Matthias Kessler, had said that he would advise Sinkewitz to confess, if he has something to confess to.
