Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) went to the sign in board with a variation to his team's jersey. Written in a lovely script were the words, "Thank you, fans!" It was a lovely sentiment from a pro of 17 years who knows were the support ultimately comes from. He may have planned to combine the jersey with the actions he has now set into play. With the ascent up into the Garden of the Gods, Voigt quickly got a sizable gap on the break away and set off in search of the stage victory that would cap an already brilliant career. Voigt has said that he wanted to leave racing while he was still competitive and he certainly proved his capabilities in the final lap of the Colorado Springs circuit.
