We recently showed you the press release on Trek’s chromed out beauty that honors Jens and his final professional race on US soil. Now check out the real pics from Stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge, next…
Jens held a significant lead over the peloton for the last portion of Stage 4 in Colorado Springs. But he was screaming by far too fast to catch any of these gorgeous details.
The now famous line, affixed prominently – Jens will never forget his mantra.
The Trek rep was overjoyed to pass around this custom frameset. One of only two produced, this was Jens’ actual spare frame.
The story was told of just how excited Jens was to receive this career honoring frameset. Apparently, Jens was walking around Aspen during stage 1 and showing off all these custom details to everyone he ran into. Folks clamoring for an autograph ended up with a personal show-and-tell from Mr. Voigt himself.
The rainbow of colors along the top-tube correspond with those delineated down the down-tube. Supposedly each is ranked in order of most significant influences in Jens’ career, starting with his wife Stephanie, his children, his country, etc. There must be a lot of meaning there for the retiring German – no wonder he was so exuberant.
One Last Time Jens! The USA Pro Challenge wraps up this Sunday in Denver, CO.
