Jens Voigt's Hour

As you may have read in my last updates post, there is going to be an attempt made at The Hour by soon-to-be-retired professional Jens Voigt on Thursday, September 18th at 1pm ET US. Most of us in the US who were paying attention knew that we would probably have to find alternative means (a pirated internet stream) in order to watch, but it now appears that Trek Bikes, Jens' team sponsor is going to host a feed on their website here: http://www.trekbikes.com/hour_record/

It appears that the UCI, the sport's governing body, will also be streaming the event live through their channel on Youtube. The link is here.

While historically corporate website hosted live feeds like the one from Trek are sometimes unreliable, it is good to see it will be available to us here in the states. So if you want to see exactly what this event is that I have been talking about for two years now, check out one of the links above, or look for an alternative Eurosport feed, on Thursday.

In the meantime, here is another write up on his attempt, why it matters, and a little more background on The Hour.
