Jens Voigt Week by midwaymilly Jens Voigt Week by midwaymilly
I've had this one up on my tumblr since the Tour de France last month, but I hadn't posted it on dA yet... and since apparently this week is Shark Week, I thought now would be an appropriate time to post it here... x'DD

For those of you who don't follow cycling and therefore probably don't know who Jens Voigt is, here's a good introductory article: [link]
(He's basically become the Chuck Norris of the cycling world. xD )


The quote that inspired this picture came from the Jens Voigt Facts website; their twitter can be found here: [link]

lulz. They noticed this, btw. Linked the tumblr version at the facts website. xD

...I think I might get into cycling after reading all that on the article. In the mean time I'll just follow tennis and drifting~

Yesss, oh man I was so thrilled that they managed to find it somehow~ *v* It's so awesome that it made it to their page!
It's also apparently been making quite a splash at the local outdoor & bike shop here, which is a huge honor for me as well! xD

and alkjsdlfkjshsj you should totally give cycling a shot~ 8DD It's probably one of those sports that some people will have a hard time getting into, but for me it's one of the most exciting things to watch... the pro riders and the entire cycling community are just so fun to follow~ *v*
If anything, watching the Tour de France coverage is a great way to see if cycling's your kind of thing or not, so you should totally tune in to some of next year's race if you can~! 8D

... Also that's very interesting that you follow drifting! o: I never would've guessed that!

I got into the whole drifting thing after reading Initial D - I even bought that "Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" film~ XD

Besides, Keiichi Tsuchiya is epic~ He started the whole "drifting on mountain roads" thing, after all. 8D Not to mention the vids on YT where he races against different professional drivers, they're pretty awesome. He really deserves his "Drift King" nickname.

There are actually three series on cycling. One manga/anime, two anime. [link]

Plus there are anime on soccer, American football, tennis, drifting, F-1, futuristic F-1, motorcycle racing, boxing, martial arts in general, basketball, baseball, rollerskating, figure skating, judo, karate, mah-jong, swimming, volleyball...

What I follow are Initial D (drifting), Cyber Formula (futuristic F-1, also one of the best old school series there are), general martial arts (HSD Kenichi), tennis (Prince of Tennis) and boxing (Ring ni Kakero). XD

.... Oh my god. X'D I need to watch these asap just for the hell of it.

I knew there were lots of sports anime out there but I never imagined they'd actually have one for cycling...! x'D

... Somebody should make a series about curling next. |D

Ice hockey anime seem to be missing, too. ...Not that I care about that one. Even though I'm Finnish, it just doesn't interest me at all.

Oh wow, I'm honestly surprised they don't have one for ice hockey yet... :U That seems pretty major.... (Even though it doesn't interest me at all either.... :XD: But hockey's not really a big thing around here, so I guess that's understandable for me. :T )
