An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Basque, a Welshman, a Spaniard, and a Canadian head out on a bike ride… No, seriously… that’s what we did today in Freiburg, Germany, as we prepped for the next 3 stages of the Giant Tour
Stage 7 in the Deutschland tour, it’s the time trial and the classification honours are on the line. Jens Voigt, the German powerhouse has proved unstoppable so far in the tour, can he continue his run of wins into the time trial?
It’s happened before and could happen Tuesday – a final TT deciding a race gc. The stage 7 time trial could make or break the Tour of Germany title, so PEZ kitted up for a first hand look at the 38km corsa.
In a move reminiscent of George Hincapie’s mountain stage win in the ’05 Tour de France, CSC’s big German Jens Voigt grew wings and climbed like a man possessed, or at least transformed by the leader’s jersey, to win an inspiring battle over last year’s champ Levi Leipheimer.
