But I do agree, it’s awesome to watch Voigt put down the hurt. Especially when you hear what he’s thinking about it in a later interview. Such as the TdF coverage this year where he was featured in stage 11 or 13. It was awesome!
A simple guy with a great sense of humour!
In Overcoming, there is a scene where he walks into a hotel room, tests the TV set and, as he sees it in working order, says: - LIFE IS GREAT!!!
I will watch the movie again.
Jens Voigt, my hero!!
You thanked us, your readers, in your last post. Now I want to thank you for continuing to post great pieces like this on the best cycling-blog ever!
‘I’d like to arrive alone at the finish line,’
-Voigt on the 07 Amstel Gold.
How awesome is that?
The Jens segment is great.
The first clip is probably my all time favourite piece of cycling film. Voigt is the definition of selfless, and still supremely successful. That’s PRO.
One of my favourite riders. Overcoming is worth owning just for the Jens Segments.
He still has it, his pulls at the front on Tourmalet at this years TdF were awesome.
Jens. It should be the new entry in Websters for “hard-man”. I don’t think there’s another rider I like to see sitting on the front of a break smiling because he knows he’s putting down the hurt.
