Indeed, Trek Factory Racing announced today, that Voigt has officially become the team’s "Ambassador of Awesome".
According to Trek, Voigt’s new role will entail a variety of duties, to include "leading the team on a daily "lunch" ride, to yelling motivational catch phrases at staff members, and increasing worker productivity’.
“We expect to see our average employee’s productivity to increase by somewhere between 500-600% when Jens is around,” said Trek VP Joe Vadeboncoeur.
“Provided they complete their geocaching tasks in a timely manner. Maybe I’m being a little conservative, but we don’t want to heap unreasonable expectations on too early.”
When he’s not inspiring the Trek employees, Voigt will be working towards becoming a coach with an eye on a taking his place in a team car as a directeur sportif in future.
