Voigt - again!

If his victories in Germany weren't enough already, Jens Voigt did it again last Sunday at the Sparkassen Giro Bochum, which gave the Team CSC rider his fifth victory in the space of a fortnight!

"I have to give the whole team a lot of credit. We made sure we had a rider in all the breakaways and for a long time, it looked like a break with Jakob Piil, among others, would be able to make it all the way, but they were caught with about 15 to 20 kilometres to go," said Voigt on

"When the peloton was all together again, a lot of counter attacks were launched, and I was able to go with one of them, and it was a good group of riders. In the end, I was alone with a German rider [André Korff], who is supposed to be strong in a sprint finish, so I attacked on the last climb, and I was successful. At one point I had 40 seconds, but at the finish I think I only had about 20 seconds."

Next up for Jens Voigt is the Tour of Poland, where he will be considered one of the overall favourites after his latest string of victories. Can anyone stop this evergreen cycling machine?
