That Jens Voigt interview on cyclingnews was a painful read.


For Benson I think....another underwhelming piece from him. He very pathetically tried to back Jens into a corner and ended up backing himself into the same corner.

CN: Okay. What’s the question?

JV: I’m just trying to point to out that it’s easy that we know everything now and why didn’t you do this and that.

CN: You’re right if what you’re saying is that nothing is black and white. I agree on that. I’m not evading the question.

JV: You’re trying to dodge the question.

CN: No. I gave you a straight answer earlier that I don’t work with Murdoch.

JV: As I said I had a good relationship with Bjarne. He respected me and I had a good attitude. I respected him for his point of view in life, how he challenged me to be a better rider and we both worked in a way that made us better. I remember when I had my bad crash in the Tour I needed another surgery and the day before the operation was the day before his wedding. He called me and said don’t worry, have the operation, do you rehab and we’ll have a contract for you next year. You have my word you have a contract. He was good to me.

CN: You’re not the first rider to have good word for Bjarne. A lot of riders would say the same thing, that they have respect for him and that he got the best out of him.

JV: The merger when Johan came. Do you think that someone came and asked me? Do you think someone would come and ask you if you were going to be sold to The Times?

CN: Then I would be working for Murdoch.

JV: [Laughter] Exactly. I’m just a rider and I was 41 at the time. There’s not many teams that would take a rider at 41 so there we are again with the whether you should open your mouth question. If you just firing off then you might be out of the job. The merger became known to the public during Colorado so you have a month and half to find a contract at my age. I didn’t have an ongoing contract with the team. I was also curious. I thought maybe Johan would bring something different to the team. He had a different way of running things which in the end didn’t work out the way we wanted to, but I was curious. He does have some experience in cycling and I thought maybe he can make the Schlecks win the Tour.

The 'pro riding undersized frame' trend takes a turn toward the ridiculous:

Agree with the poster above, that was an appalling interview Benson has come across as a blunt instrument in that (again) and good luck to him getting anyone to talk to him in the future.

I give him credit for asking some questions that many wouldnt. I mean, how dare anyone offend a fan favorite like armstr...wait wait I mean Jens. I forgot, this is 2013 not 2001. Granted he wasnt asking those questions when it really mattered. Better late than never I guess.
Honestly if Jens gets angry about those types of questions then he might be in for a long farewell season.
Will admit that it was an odd interview. They were good friends at the end there. Hugs and kisses then they both asked for their paycheck.

I've got no 'Jens love' problems at all, in fact, I think the guy was probably in on the whole thing. That's not the problem w/ Benson's interview in my eyes. The problem is that he does a horrid job trying to frame his argument and put people into corners to uncover the 'big' story and he never gets anywhere and ends up doing a disservice to the war on doping and to cycling in general.

.....ouch I just came out a bit rough, must be the hangover! :D
