Andre Greipel Took the Last Chance

Road: Before the Giro d’Italia started the Group talked a great deal about that Andre Greipel (HTC-Columbia) would prove to everyone that he can dominate the spurterna even in the big context but it has proved more difficult than expected for him. On Thursday’s stage came as the much-anticipated stage victory for the German.

Before the Giro d’Italia started the Group talked a great deal about that André Greipel (HTC-Columbia) would prove to everyone that he can dominate the spurterna even in the big context but it has proved more difficult than expected for him. On Thursday’s stage came as the much-anticipated stage victory for the German.

It was a bit of a last chance for him to win a stage in this year’s Giro d’Italia because it was the final sprint stage at this year’s Edition.

HTC-Columbia worked hard in front in the lead to get to a klungspurt in Brescia on the 18th stage and they did it very well.

“I am not a machine, but a human being. It is because I was sick two days before the Giro that I haven’t won any leg before. It was worth staying in the competition, “notes André Greipel.
