Jens Voigt

One of my favorite riders crashed today on Stage 16 -- and landed on his face. The following is not for the squeamish:

Jens Voigt is one of those riders who isn't the fastest or most gifted, but he makes up for it with sheer determination, character and aggression. A commenter at Podium Cafe replaced "Chuck Norris" with "Jens Voigt" and came up with the following:

- When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Jens.

- Outer space exists because it’s afraid to be on the same planet with Jens.

- Jens does not sleep. He waits.

- While urinating, Jens is easily capable of welding titanium.

Fortunately, he only suffered a fractured cheek bone and a concussion. Go Jens!
