The ever impressive Jens Voigt took a nasty spill today. It is really quite amazing he is not more seriously hurt. I was rather taken aback when I saw his crash this morning. Jens is an incredible cyclist, a veteran competitor, and by all accounts I have heard, a stand-up athlete who is one of the toughest men in his sport. He did some incredible work to pull himself back to help his team leaders after he was dropped on the last climb today. Then, shortly after going over the top he uncharacteristically lost control and hit the pavement at around 70 km/hr.
Wishing one of my favourite cyclists all the best in his recovery.
