German powerhouse André Greipel is one of the most consistent sprinters in the current professional peloton.
He belongs to an elite group of riders who have taken stage wins in all three Grand Tours: the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. As of the end of the 2017 season, that included 11 Tour stages, seven in the Giro and four in the Vuelta.
Perhaps most remarkably, Greipel won at least one stage of the Tour every year between 2011 and 2016, only halting the run in 2017.
