Jens Voigt is my favorite kind of rider. He is completely selfless when it comes to his team. He personifies the worker and he leaves nothing behind on the field. He is also one of the most loved riders in the world, and certainly one of the top 3 favorite riders among pro riders themselves. This isnt by accident.
I have included 2 clips from the movie Overcoming, which is a documentary about the CSC team . Its a bit of a stretch in time, but over your lunch make a cup of coffee and load them over your companies bandwidth. He is a very unique individual and yes, I have had the chance to spend time with him and yes, he is THAT nice.
We had a very interesting conversation ranging from Shark Spotters in Muizenberg to how Global Warming is going to affect Germany. He is madly passionate about his kids, as he is about everything in life it seems, but his kids in particular got him going full tilt, arms flailing all over the show and shouting about how proud he was of them.
No go out and do something selfless and random for someone.
