Andre Greipel raps in a bizarre Tour de France music video

German sprinter Andre Greipel shows off his musical abilities with the world famous Enrico Muax in a rap about the Tour de France

Remember the love song to Alberto Contador that surfaced before Christmas? Who could forget? Well, there's excellent news: the man behind the video is back, and this time he features another Tour de France star.

Lotto-Soudal's Andre Greipel is quite the rapper, if this video is anything to go by (and you have low standards when it comes to rap music) as he joins Enrico Muax in this ditty about the upcoming Tour.

While Muax - 'famous' for his songs about professional cyclists - does most of the rapping, Greipel joins in with the odd word every now and again, until you reach the 1:17 mark, when 'Da Gorrilla' launches into his own verse.

"Pain is the weakness leaving the body," he raps. "Pain in the legs is something you don't know, because you're just setting up the big show."

It's fair to say Greipel wasn't done any favours with the lyrics, but he does a reasonably decent job in rapping about a very tough subject area.
