Jens Voigt to visit South Africa in the lead up to the Cape Town Cycle Tour

To celebrate that Trek is now direct in South Africa, Trek is bringing out the legendary Jens Voigt. Jens will be participating in the #MyTrek Sunset Charity Cycles in aid of Qhubeka, and in the upcoming Cape Town Cycle Tour.

Jens Voigt is 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 world Hour Record holder before retiring as a member of Wisconsin’s own Trek Factory Racing team after a storied 17-year career. More recently, in January he completed the grueling Everest challenge in 26h30m, a massive 9 000m of climbing and over 400km of riding in snow and on frozen roads.
