André Greipel and Lotto-Belisol take first win of the Season!
Congratulations to André Greipel and the rest of team Lotto Belisol for their fast and successful start to the season! Lotto Belisol took their first win of the season with a stellar performance by André Greipel, who was the fastest in the fourth stage of the Tour Down Under, and teammates Jürgen Roelandts and Elia Viviani.
It is André Greipel's 15th stage win ever, with more to come. Greipel commented after the win:
"For me this was the first real sprinter's chance at the Tour Down Under. That today we not only take the stage win but also the second place with Jürgen Roelandts shows the strength of our team. This was a very strong collective performance. It was a nervous stage, with a lot of crosswind. At the right moment we raised the pressure which resulted in a split of the peloton. Of course I'm glad I could take my first victory. I knew the last climb and the final well, so I knew what we could expect. This well-deserved victory is great. The team is rewarded for its work. The confidence was there, but because of the victory we are all the more looking forward to the final stage on Sunday."
Again, congratulations to the Lotto Belisol team! Cheers to continued success!
