Ladies and Gentlemen, Jens Voigt

From VeloNews:
Changes in the 2010 racing calendar mean that Jens Voigt will not have a chance to make history at Critérium International title later this month. The German veteran has won the two-day race five times, tying a record held by Emile Idée and Raymond Poulidor, but the 38-year-old won’t be going back this year — with Ghent-Wevelgem and Volta a Catalunya coinciding with the two-day race window of Critérium International on March 26-27, Voigt’s Saxo Bank squad is stretched too thin to send a minimum of six riders to the French race.

“Can’t I just start alone? I don’t need a team. All I need is a mechanic and a car!” Voigt told VeloNews. “I can take the jersey on the first day, then I can just hide in the bunch, then you do a time trial. You don’t need anybody else.”
As DeWitt might say, unimprovable.
