André Greipel: A sprinting legend

July 18, 2023

In episode 76, I sit down with one of the greatest sprinters of all time, André Greipel, AKA the Gorilla. We discuss modern-day sprinters and how sprints have evolved over the years. André talks about his time with the infamous HTC-Colombia team and his home at Lotto-Soudal and compares the different attitudes between the teams. We also discuss the relationship between a sprinter and his leadout and why that bond is so important. With over 150 professional wins and 11 stages of the Tour de France, there is no doubt André is one of the greats. I hope you enjoy this one legends.
