What do you say after being beaten by inches in a two-up sprint after a 150km+ stage? Do you celebrate second place, or mourn the sweet, sweet victory that didn’t come? Do you take a moment of silence to compose yourself? To each their very own, but after today’s heartbreaker, Jens Voigt reacted as the fan-favorite only could. You can check out his reactions in the video below.
Jens Voigt is absolutely hilarious and is probably the best-like rider in the peloton. His legendary status has been immortalized on Jens Voigt Facts. I’ve collected a few of my personal favorites:
Jens Voigt has twice won Liege-Bastogne-Liege-Bastogne-Liege-Bastogne-Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
You are what you eat. Jens Voigt eats spring steel for breakfast, fire for lunch, and a mixture of titanium and carbon fiber for dinner. For between-meal snacks, he eats men’s souls, and downs it with a tall cool glass of The Milk of Human Suffering.
Jens Voigt is the permanent holder of the keys to the Pain Locker.
RadioShack-Nissan has an outstanding and high-quality channel on Youtube that is definitely worth a ‘favorite’.
