Jens Voight Sets a New Hour Record


Jens Voight, 43, just road 205 laps around the Swiss National Velodrome to set a new hour record with 51.115 kilometers.

Voight, who is famous for his saying “shut up legs,” went out fast and was able to beat the 49.700 kilometer record held by Ondřej Sosenka of Czechoslovakia.

Riding a specially modified Trek Speed Concept track bike and silver Bontrager shoes, I don’t ever remember Jens looking so thin or fit. Writing his name in the record books for the hour record is icing on the cake for an impressive career.
