Jens Voigt

Jens Voigt (born 17 September 1971) is a German professional road bicycle racer for UCI ProTeam RadioShack-Nissan. Voigt is known for his propensity to attack, and for his positive racing attitude. He is capable of repeated attacking, holding a high tempo, and breaking away from the peloton. He has worn the yellow jersey of the Tour de France twice, though he has never challenged for the overall title due to his lack of ability in the mountains. In cycling folklore, he is considered as one of the best rouleur riders to this day.

Voigt is generally popular with cycling fans, both for his aggressive riding style and his affable, forthright and articulate style in dealing with the public and media.
