Sinkewitz takes stage, Ullrich drops to 3rd
Wednesday's stage at the Tour of Germany was the hardest of the Tour, with two first-category climbs. QuickStep's Patrik Sinkewitz, 23, of Germany took the stage, ahead of Francisco Mancebo. Sinkewitz moved into overall race leadership, 12 seconds ahead of Jan Hruska. Ullrich was 12th on the stage, 1:14 back, which drops him to third overall.
Procycling.com has a good story on Sinkewitz, who they compare to Damiano Cunego, the 22-year-old winner of the Giro d'Italia.
