Lotto Belisol: André Greipel looks forward to 2014
lotto650big The preparation for a new season has begun. André Greipel knows what is expected of him. And he expects it of himself as well. Victories, preferably of the highest quality, preferably from January till September. The past seasons Greipel gave the team tens of wins. His train stayed intact and the team got reinforced.

André Greipel: “We have nine newcomers, but it doesn’t feel that way. Some young riders have arrived in the team and there have come some new faces from other teams, but I got the feeling they fit in. I have extended my contract, my train stayed and that is important for me. I’m happy here, otherwise I wouldn’t have signed for a longer period. I want to keep taking the responsibility to give the team victories, always trying to become better, working even more professional and set new goals.”

Each season goals are put forward, predictions are made and plans designed. The sprinter will pass for Milan – Sanremo, but he does want to pursue a win in a classic. “Because of the difficulty of Milaan – Sanremo it’s hard to aim for a result. But Ghent-Wevelgem is also a very beautiful race that has to lie within my possibilities. And winning Paris-Roubaix is normally an utopia, but the race does suit me. In the Tour it is always our first goal to get a first stage win. Only then you can think about more. But I want to be competitive the whole season. The young sprinters are developing well and I’m becoming a year older, but I’m still very fast.”
