The International Herald Tribune (via AP) reports that the German cycling team Gerolsteiner may sue Patrik Sinkewitz, the former T-Mobile Team member who tested positive for doping. T-Mobile fired Sinkewitz from the team last Tuesday. The German Team plans to sue Sinkewitz for "damaging cycling and its image;" the German Team believes that the "doping-marred Tour de France has lowered the value of cycling teams." Sinkewitz has acknowledged that he used a testosterone gel while training in France - a month before the race and the day before the positive test.
