Cycling legend Jens Voigt visiting SA in lead up to the Cape Town Cycle Tour

Trek Bikes South Africa and celebrated cyclist, Jens Voigt, for a fun filled sunset cycle, suitable for everyone, in Cape Town on Friday, March 10, 4pm at Boschendal Wine Farm. Voigt will be participating in the #MyTrek Sunset Charity Cycles in aid of the non-profit, Qhubeka and in the upcoming Cape Town Cycle Tour.

Voigt is regarded as a true legend in the sport of professional cycling, most commonly known for his saying “shut up legs”.

The German born cyclist and father of six has competed in the Tour de France 17 times, winning several stages and wearing the famed yellow jersey in the race’s 2005 edition. In 2014, Jens became the UCI World 1 hour record holder before retiring as a member of the Trek Factory Racing Pro team after a storied 17-year career. More recently, in January he completed the grueling Everest challenge in 26h30m, a massive 9000 metres of climbing and over 400km of riding in snow and on frozen roads.

“We are thrilled to have Jen’s coming to South Africa, he loves spending time with his fans chatting about his passion for the sport. He is a legendary sportsman  – the Trek  team and our Trek retailers are so excited for his visit”.
