« Steroid importer arrested on drug charges: British Dragon goes down | Main | She may win or lose by a whisker: Tammy Thomas on trial »




Former T-Mobile rider Patrick Sinkewitz, who turned state's evidence after testing positive for testosterone, has also reportedly said that he and Kloden received blood transfusions at the Freiburg clinic before the 2006 Tour De France. This was done while Ullrich was being banned from the 2006 Tour for being part of a Spanish blood doping ring (Operation Puerto). The ties between the Spanish ring and Germany are still unclear though there seems to be some link. Ullrich was always surrounded by his own people.

Anyway, takes a lot of nerve to blood dope while your team leader is getting tossed for doing the same thing.

Sinkewitz is probably most famous for being the only rider to stay with Floyd Landis for most of Landis' ill-fated, positive for testosterone comeback ride in the 2006 Tour. Kloden finished third overall, now moved up to second with Landis being stripped of the title.
