Beast from the East: Shutting the Legs Up One More Time

Congratulations to Jens Voigt for breaking the one hour world record with a scorching 51.115 kmh! Jens broke Ondřej Sosenka’s record of 49.7 kmh. Slicing through the wind on his special Trek time trial, Jens started with a steady and smooth pace. The speed was as consistent as his pedal strokes. No fight to the bike. Body relaxed. Focused. From the beginning, most could tell that Jens was focused on breaking this 9 year record at 43 years of age! In this Youtube video, the evidence is obvious:

Soaking in the pain is the name of Jens Voigt’s game. He can suffer with the best and demands that his body does exactly what he wants it to do. As a mid-forties guy, I am excited for him and have some hope for myself that I have a little more to give.
