Last year we saw Greipel channelling his inner Eminem by launching into a rap about cycling, but this year it’s all a bit more mellow.
We see the German sprinter walking ‘to Paris’, dragging his suitcase behind him, explaining in the lyrics about the stuggle to leave his family behind for almost a month.
“I must leave my family for eternities, simply to do my job,” Greipel sings, with the support of Muax.
“Once in France I’ll do my best, to make my dreams come true. To win a stage at the Tour de France for my family, my team and you.”
It’s fair to say that Greipel probably won’t be winning an Emmy any time soon, but it’s a decent song all things considered.
“Do not expect a perfect “Pavarotti”. Simply expect a guy who loves music and who accepts the challenge,” read the press release that accompanied the song.
