    For all the cycling fans out here, Jens Voigt will be attempting to break the hour record today. It will be his last professional race. It starts at 1 Eastern Time. I've included the link that Trek sent out to watch his attempt.

    I think he sets the record, and its the perfect way for him to go out of cycling. What do you all think?

    I think he will break the record, but I am very sure Tony Martin and Fabian Cancellara will better at some point in the next few years

    I think it is a great end to his career. to bad he wont be wearing oakley while he does it though ;->

    no doubt about it being broken i think they will let it stand a while for him though.

    his attempt reminded me of the movie " The Flying Scotsman"

    if it gets a lot of attention then I think Tony and/or Fabian will attempt to set it in a year or two. I agree with Duke, they will let it stand for a while out of respect for Jens.

    I may have to break out "The Flying Scotsman" and watch it again tonight.

    He did a great job by keeping the bike smooth in the corners to help him maintain speed.
