    Great write up. Always thought Greipel seemed like a nice guy!

    Interesting that the Gorilla rides much shallower rims than one might expect of a sprinter on a pan flat stage.

    I love Andre and he’s a great athlete, but to paint your bike green when the sprint “Winner” wont be known for sure until the end of the race is pretty arrogant and egotistical. I feel the same way about the Yellow bikes, many only get ridden for a day, what a waste of time and money.

      Times have changed – it’s now the expected response to wearing a jersey at the TdF.
      Back in the late 90’s when Cipo started all this it had impact. Now it’s just …well not that interesting. Green SRM head units? Meh..

      If a team has a rider that has a shot at wearing green it makes sense having a bike ready. It adds a bit of flair to the race and its something most fans appreciate. Its an honour wearing yellow/green/polka/white and a way of the team/sponsor showing their appreciation is having a custom bike ready. My opinion :)
