In cooperation with Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and broadcast partner Eurosport, Trek Bicycle will stream Jens Voigt’s Hour Record attempt for free for US fans via the brand’s website, trekbikes.com from 11:30 – 13:30 CDT September 18, 2014. The attempt is scheduled to begin at 12:00 CDT. Trek, UCI, and Eurosport have teamed up to ensure that Jens Voigt’s sizeable US fan base will not be left out of viewing what is surely to be the iconic cyclist’s last, and perhaps most important, ride of his storied career. The attempt will take place Thursday, September 18 at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, Switzerland and will be broadcast by Eurosport to over 140 million homes in 70 countries. US-based visitors to trekbikes.com will be able to view the stream by visiting www.trekbikes.com/hour_record. The page will be live the morning of Thursday, September 18.
Fans who want to follow the attempt via Twitter are encouraged to follow @TrekFactory for live updates and use the hashtag #HourRecord to join the conversation and cheer Jens on.
“To be able to give the US fans, some of the most passionate fans in the world, the opportunity to watch the attempt is really something special,” said Voigt. “I’m doing this for a lot of reasons but one of the biggest reasons is to give the fans one last thing to cheer for and I’ll be carrying all of that goodwill with me on the ride.”
