Your Questions for Jens Voigt

Postby AUbicycles » Mon Aug 09, 2010 6:26 pm

I am planning an interview with Jens Voigt and and looking forward to sitting down together with the hardest man of pro cycling.
Not yet 100% confirmed... but close... you lets hear what you have to say. For humour, I will pick the best. Love to have some serious ones as well.

Serious...

As THE hard man of modern cycling, who do you rate as hard? Is anyone?
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

what do you see as the key challenges and objectives in your role as riders' representative on the UCI ProTour council?

Exactly how many coffees per day and what happens if you fail to hit this limit?

Go on, own up...the drawer of chocolates and lollies have nothing to do with the kids do they?

If Jens can control chaos then what can't he do?

Did Mavic let you keep the Yellow Kiddies bike you had to ride on Stage 16 to give to one of your children?

1. What does Jens think of the cult status that he has?

2. Team Saxo Bank comes across as being a very tight knit unit compared to other teams. How does the team culture differ from other teams (e.g. Credit Agricole) and how has it been achieved?

With the changes now at Saxo, what are his thoughts re where he will end his career ?

Are there any regrets with how your career has worked out ? i.e. races you wouold have won but ....

How do you balance being one of the "hard men" in the peleton, yet also very well respected ?

Good luck !!!

Serious:

Have advancements in bicycle technology made long stages or one day races less punishing on the body?
Has speed and comfort improved, or is every improvement based on speed and weight, with comfort a long last on the list of categories to fulfil?


Not so serious:

What does your family think of the Jens Voigt legend?

FWIW, there was an excellent interview with Jens published in BA, either the last edition or the one before. Worth a read and might provide a bit of insight to inform the questions in this interview - i.e., dig a little deeper.
