If I had to pick a favorite rider from the Tour De France, I would have to say that for the past couple of years, it’s been Jens Voigt. At 40 years old, he’s the oldest rider in the 2012 peloton, but the guy’s got so much heart and enthusiasm that you’ve gotta love him. Riding for RadioShack Nisson Trek, he’s not content to sit in the pack, and can usually be found attacking, or setting pace for the peleton.
In addition, for the past couple of years, he’s been blogging the Tour over at Bicycling every day after he races. His posts are insightful and give you a peek behind the scenes…and you can tell he doesn’t take himself too seriously. His blog can be found here. In addition, I’ve been following him on Twitter for a while, and his tweets give you a real feeling that he loves his family and loves sharing snippets of his life with his fans. If you follow @thejensie, you will see what I mean.
How about you? Do you have a favorite in the pro peloton?
