after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

voigt restores

what a great stage today at the DT [deutschland tour]. jens voigt restores faith in cyling for myself and millioins of fans. oh, wait, i never lost faith in the greatest sport on earth, unlike some wishy washy whining cheese eating surrender monkeys.

[what a true hardman]

jens rode hard all day and stuck to levi's tail up some of the steepest roads in germany / austria today. what a gallant passionate ride, the stuff to bring a tear to your eye. we all know what floyd did on stage 17 [TDF], that was possesed and historic, but what jens did today was heroic. floyd on a good day can do what he did, but the 35 year old jens was not suppose to be there at the finish 2sec ahead of mr. leipheimer [a mountain climbing, stage race winning super man]. way to go mr. voigt, you truly are the man.

[erik taunting the climbers]

speaking of men, how about the effort of mr. zabel today and for fighting the entire race. most racers would have given up [did i mention he is 36 now] like a wuss by now, but not erik, when you look at the results today, he, a sprinter, picked up mountain points today and was on a long break away up the beyond-category hahntenjoch [yes beyond category] with s.lang ahead of the leaders. they established an 8min lead over the DT contenders [well if eric had stayed away, i believe he would be in yellow]. way to go eric [and sebastian]. what a great day of racing, thanks jens and erik for for showing the youngsters what it is truly like to be a hardman and for giving us some beyond category racing action.
