No shit.

German cyclist Patrik Sinkewitz, who was recently handed a one-year suspension for a failed drugs test, admitted on Saturday that he used doping products in the build up to the 2000 World Championships.

The 27-year-old, sacked by Team T-Mobile in July after abnormal levels of testosterone were found in his blood, says he doped while preparing for the 2000 world’s in Plouay, France.

Sinkewitz was part of the German Under-23 team, but pulled out of competing a few days before the championships and he says officials in the team knew he doped.

Sinkewitz, who has previously revealed details of doping in T-Mobile, said doping was also widely practiced at Quick Step, where he raced between 2001 and 2005.


And how nice for me that “Sinkewitz” sounds a whole lot like “Sinking Ship”.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
