No wonder Telekom pulled out


The German newspaper Stuttgarter-Zeitung will claim that after the TDF prolog on 1st July 2006 Patrick Sinkewitz together with at least four team-mates drove from Strasbourg to Freiburg to receive transfusions of their own blood at the university clinic. The Freiburg senior prosecutor Wolfgang Maier says “We are examining whether more people were aware of the events at the institute besides the doctors Schmid und Heinrich who have already been dismissed”

T Mobile started the 2006 tour with just seven riders, they were Andreas Klöden, Matthias Kessler, Patrik Sinkewitz, Michael Rogers, Giuseppe Guerini, Eddy Mazzoleni and Sergei Gonchar. In the individual time trial a week later Gonchar was the winner and T Mobile placed four in the first eight! If five riders went to Freiburg which two were left behind?
