No Stopping Greipel
19 Jan, 2012
Out for a fast start in 2012 is German sprinter Andre Greipel, having racked up three wins in almost as many days the Lotto Belisol rider has taken back his grip at the top of the field in the Santos Tour Down Under.

Greipels win shows the work he has put in over the off season and also dedication the new team have for their leader in Australia with them being a man down to just five riders with the withdrawal of Jurgen Roelandts following the opening stage on Tuesday. Greipel dedicated today's win to the Belgian who broke his sixth cervical vertebra in a crash that decimated the peloton on Stage 1.

"This victory is for Jurgen Roelandts who unfortunately supports us from the hospital," he said following his second stage victory of the Tour Down Under. "We're nearly three riders down but the rest of the team that is not injured has been awesome today."

The kiwi contingent of Jack Bauer, Hayden Roulston, Greg Henderson and Jessie Sergent all braved the day finishing in the same time as the winner with Henderson playing his part in setting up the Lotto Belisol leadout.
