Adam Hansen (Lotto-Soudal) is best known for being the man who has completed 14 Grand Tours in a row, and is presently riding his 15th at the 2016 Tour de France.

It’s a great feat and an accolade any WorldTour team would want to be associated with, but as this video shows Hansen does more than just turn up.

He’s often active in breakaways and counts stage wins in the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España in his palmarès, but a lot of the time he works for his teammates and for the success of the team as a whole.

Here we can see him coming alongside the team car on bottle duty. His DS passes him bottle after bottle in quick succession, each of which he grabs and stows away without trouble. In well under a minute he’s laden with 11 bottles, ready to deliver to his teammates.

At the Tour de France, Lotto-Soudal‘s main focus is on stage wins with André Greipel and Hansen slots into his lead out train and an essential engine.

So far, the German has not had the kind of success he found at the 2015 Tour but there are a number of stages left that could go Greipel’s way.
