Jens Voigt will ride for the new Trek team in 2014, and the American bicycle producer has prepared a very special bike for him to use in the 2014 season.
Previously, Voigt announced that he will race for another year.
42-year-old German (born 17 September 1971) turned pro in 1997 with ZVVZ-Gian-AIS, and has ridden for Credit Agricole, CSC/Saxo Bank, and Leopard-Trek/RadioShack over the years. He has taken part in the Tour de France 16 times, every year since 1998, and has won two stages, in 2001 and 2006.
He joined what then was called Leopard Trek in 2011, and remained on board when the squad became RadioShack-Nissan in 2012. Nissan ended its role with the team at the end of last season, and the team became RadioShack-Nissan.
As the end of the 2013 season approaching, the team’s future in doubt for 2014, Trek purchased the squad from Leopard SA, owned by Flavio Becca.
