Voigt keeps on keeping on

How much longer will CSC's Jens Voigt keep on riding? Well, says the likeable 34-year-old German, it depends. Writing for, he was impressed with an even-older rider, noting that in Saturday's time trial, "Viatcheslav Ekimov finished 22nd. And he's 40 years old! I actually don't want to ride so long. But you should never say never. After all, I have four children to feed and a house to pay off. That's why I want to keep on riding until they push me off my bike."

"But seriously," he continues, "40 is pretty old. But I want to keep on until I'm 38. Mario Cipollini became world champion at age 36. I'll keep on riding as long as I stay healthy and have fun."
