Publisher's Summary

Even by the standards of a sport that requires enormous stamina and capacity for suffering, Jens Voigt is in a class on his own. Beloved by cycling fans for his madcap one-man breakaways as much as his sense of humour and quotable catchphrases, Jens is one of the most popular personalities in cycling.
Jens was born near Hamburg and came up through the East German system before the Wall came down. He got into the national team through the German army before signing for his first big team. In many ways he is cycling's anti-star; despite arguably spending more time at the front of the Tour de France than any other rider, he has worn the yellow jersey only twice, as his efforts have always been in the service of others.
Jens embodies the best of cycling's qualities - loyalty to his team, sacrifice, and devotion to the sport. He says, 'I'm not a head person, I'm more of a heart and guts guy. That's how I race.'
Shut Up Legs will be a funny, insightful and entertaining look at the tough realities of professional cycling, told in Jens' trademark irreverent and inimitable style.

Really great insight into a great rider.

Really enjoyed the book. It's well paced and give a real insight in to Jens' life.

If I could make one small change I would rather have the book read by a native German speaker as some of the pronunciations seem a little off. Eg I would prefer that Voigt is pronounced correctly and not the Phil Ligget way. :)

Doesn't matter too much though and won't spoil the story.

Cod accent spoils it

The biography itself is interesting insight into the world of a professional cyclist. However it is ruined by the use of a cod accent by the reader. I know the author is German and speaks with an accent but I don't believe it needs to be falsely imitated. I suppose some marketing person thought this would add authenticity.

Hard man - now know him a little better off the bike

Enjoyed account of Jen's life and career around cycling. Some repeat of key points throughout however was worth the read.
