From Velonews --
"I've only raced anything but the Tour," he said. "I'm almost embarrassed to say that I am 34 and I've only ridden the Tour. I'd like to widen my horizons a little bit and see how the Giro goes. I've heard it's not as hard as the Tour and not as fast. I'm old enough to absorb the workload. It's not going to kill me, so why not?"
I love it! "It's not going to kill me, so why not?"
He was a major bad a$$ at LBL as well. This is a hard, hard man my friends.
He's my insperation! On Saturday during stage two of the Ft Davis stage race I flatted within the first mile of the start. I lost 3 min waiting to get a wheel. I had to really dig deep to catch back on to the group and the whole time I kept thinking of Jens. The look on his face when he's on the front just drillin' it and making everyone just hurt. I kept thinking of that look and it helped!!!

He was so awesome in Overcoming, real sense of humour, Bjarne was joking in the car that he's probably sprinting away from the front of the bunch and seconds later on the radio he says he's sprinted off the front.
