Recent Deutschland-Tour victor Jens Voigt continues to prove age is no barrier. In Saturday's Rund um die Hainleite in Germany, the 34 year-old veteran from Team CSC leapt off the front of the peloton with 25 kilometres to go and held off a hard-chasing field to beat Wiesenhof's Robert Retschke and Belgian Frederic Amorison from Lanbouwkrediet-Colnago by 41 seconds.
"At the moment he's untouchable. He has so much strength, as he has been able to keep his top shape after the Tour de France," said CSC directeur-sportif Tristan Hoffman on team-csc.com. "The other teams took turns trying to catch him, and other riders tried to bridge the gap, but they just couldn't reel him in."
