Tour de France Doping = Lawsuit?

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.
