Cycling: Jens Voigt from Berlin will make history. The 42-year-old Berliner was called up for the Tour de France by his Trek Factory Racing team.
Even before the selection, he had been skeptical. "I'm 42 now - you don't get stronger and faster then. [...]It is more likely that the odds are only 40:60.” Now he is in France and is happy: “The tour outshines everything, it's the greatest adventure in the world. That's where heroes are made.”
Voigt was last in action at Critérium du Dauphiné and was represented there several times in top groups.
