After busting a gut in breakaways throughout in the Tour de France (finishing 3d on one stage and 6th on another) and in the ongoing US Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado (where he was in the break on the first two stages), Jens went off the front from virtually the start of today's stage, and the peloton never saw him again. Up and down mountains and through a cold rain shower the 40 (soon to be 41) -year-old rode 90 miles and the better part of 4 hours on his own, showing once again what a tough, aggressive, and classy cyclist he is. Every knowledgeable cycling fan, and many of Jens' fellow pros, will be celebrating this great victory.
