Hometown: Berlin, Germany
Jens Voigt is one of the most popular professional riders due to his attacking style and never say die attitude.
Coming out of East Germany, Voigt developed into a rider who could power away from the peloton. This style of riding has earned him stage wins in the Tour de France (3 stages) and the Giro d’ Italia (1 stage). He has also won the Critérium International five times.
While most riders have long retired by his age, Voigt continues to impress with a second place in the Bakersfield time trial at the 2012 Amgen Tour of California. At the 2012 Tour de France he scored two top-ten stage finishes.
