Following his second overall win at the Deutschland Tour, Jens Voigt (Team CSC) said to Eurosport.de, "Every win is great. But winning such a big race in Germany makes me doubly happy." Voigt became the first rider in history to win the Deutschland Tour twice

"It was more difficult this year than last year," reflected Voigt. "I wasn't as strong and was under a lot of pressure. In addition, I had the advantage last year that nobody thought I would win."

Voigt secured his win after finishing with the bunch on the final stage, which was won by Gerald Ciolek (T-Mobile) in a bunch sprint.

"This was a great race for us and the outcome was perfect," said Team CSC's sports director Kim Andersen on the team's website, team-csc.com. "We worked together with T-Mobile in reeling in the break today and in the end we decided to help them all the way home to repay them for helping us during the last three stages after the mountains. It was brilliant to see "JJ" up front. He's approaching his top form, so he'll be making some results of his own soon, I reckon."
