    Another year at his salary, keeps the "real" world paycheck chase at bay a bit longer.
    If you can keep playing sports for $$$, then by all means...

    I noticed he finished dead last in the mediocre Tour of Utah field on yesterday's Stage 1. I suppose that is true Jens style though, if he's not attacking and making his breakmates wish they were never born.

    Incorrect, Jens Voigt does not finish last, ever...he was pushing everyone forward!

    +1

    He has six kids, a wife and a dog. That's a lot of mouths to feed.

    I thought he lapped them and was coming up behind.

    Jens never tires, so he can never retire.

    But really, I remember hearing him jest (hopefully) that once he retires, he will never ride a bike again.

    I think Voight can be a good DS for a pro team. He can also be a good program architect/director for a national program. Like the german equivalent of the USCF.

    Two great Jens Moments:
    ~"I am optimistic of my chances of defending ze yellow jersey tomorrow." (A rest day. )

    ~Giving the stage to Garate after sitting on him all day. Garate kept checking, kept checking, kept checking (hey man, those Germans just about owned us about a generation ago) and then finally throws his arms up in disbelief.

    After years of trying and being thwarted, I finally got to see him in the flesh at this year's ATOC Baldy finish. He didn't win the stage, but in true Jens fashion, he finished many minutes ahead of l'autobus populated with riders nearly half his age.

    I said, "Allez Jens! Bravo! Nearly there!" and he looked at me like he wanted to spit in my face. I didn't take it personal though, that spot was about 10-12 percent and I was spitting at hallucinations at l'Etape two weeks before:

    I really hope Jens will choose to involve himself in a small local club and teach the 12 to 16 year olds about training methods, technique etc. And yes, I too think he would do well running a squad

    He will have plenty of options, when he decides to retire.

    I'll ask him tomorrow.

    Saw a Jens Voigt Army jersey on a rider way down here in Texas.
    Big fan of his, but I am not sure how to get my hands on a jersey.
    Probably need to get into a bit better shape before I would even put it on.


    Tschuss, Jens

    Good for him to "weather" the "business end" without regret and compromise (shades of Hennes Junkerman) (meant as compliment)

    Explain this "Bean Episode"? The last I've seen between Bob Roll, Jens Voigt and beans would be the latest Road ID commercial. In which Jens Voigt plays a laung haul trucker that just ate a few cans of beans/chili and then picking up Bob Roll in his truck to bring him to a bicycle ride.
