Five miles to the finish, and the almost-43-year-old “affable German” was leading the way, as if to fan his feathers just one last time.  The oldest rider in the peloton did not win the day, but he certainly shaped it.  And with still six days to go, he may very well pull off another moment or two yet.  In any case, Jens Voigt has begun his well-planned swan song– his last professional cycling race. And with this bittersweet farewell, among all else, the 2014 USA Pro Challenge is well underway across Colorado.
