A few months ago, I was bullshitting with Gnome about Interbike and he asked me what my goals were for the show. Besides riding every bike I wanted at the dirt demo, the only other goal I could think of was to have a drink with as many cycling icons as possible. To weed out just who is a drunkcyclist and who isn’t.
Jens Voigt is a drunkcyclist.
Dirty: “Nah, I don’t want an autograph. But do you want to drink some whiskey with me?”
Jens (without hesitation): “Of course! …There isn’t anything else in here is there?”
Dirty:“No sir, just pure Tennessee whiskey”
There was no side sippin’ here. A significant amount of whiskey was consumed by both of us.
…and the smooth finish.
Jens: “Thank you my friend, that makes the day much better.”by
