Jens Voigt Leads Paris-Nice

Half way through the "race to the sun," and cyclingprof favorite, 38-year-old Jens Voigt holds the lead by six seconds over 20-year-old Peter Sagan, who won today's stage. While he hopes to hold on to win the overall classification, Voigt has also suggested a special recognition for older riders in the peloton:
As much as there is the white as the distinctive jersey for the best young rider, there should be a grey jersey to award the best cyclist of the over 35 year old category.
It's hard to imagine how many of those things Viatcheslav Ekimov would have won before he finally stopped racing at age 41 or 42.
