Jens Voigt signs to ride with Trek in 2014

Jens Voigt will ride for the new Trek team in 2014, the company announced on Sunday.

“I’m glad Trek and I got to an agreement for 2014. It’s been three crazy years for me … with a lot of highlights, and I’m happy that we can go on for another year,” said the 41-year-old Voigt.

“I feel I still have some gas left in the tank, so I can’t wait for what’s coming!”

Voigt joined what then was called Leopard Trek in 2011, and remained on board when the squad became RadioShack-Nissan in 2012. Nissan ended its role with the team at the end of last season, and the team became RadioShack-Nissan.

With the team’s future in doubt for 2014, Trek purchased the squad from Leopard SA, owned by Flavio Becca.

In a press release, the Wisconsin company said it is in the process of securing sponsors and riders for the 2014 campaign.

“There has seldom been a foot soldier like Jens Voigt. He is the ultimate hardman. He attacks, he works like a dog, he crashes — and he gets up and does it all again the next day,” said Trek vice president Joe Vadeboncoeur.

“Trek is honored to have Jens finish his career here.”

Looks like Peter Stetina goes from Garmin Sharp to BMC next year. Stetina, for those who aren't aware, is the son of former Red Zinger and Coors Classic winner Dale Stetina and nephew of Red Zinger Classic winner and 1976-77 U.S. National Road champion Wayne Stetina.

He joins his friend Taylor Phinney at BMC who is the son of Coors Classic winner and '80s sprint star Davis Phinney (who also won two stages in the TDF in the '80s) and '84 Olympic gold medalist Connie Carpenter Phinney who pretty much dominated stateside women's stage racing in the early '80s.
