Tour de France: Lotto-Soudal confident of Greipel victory on Champs-Élysées

After days on end of battling it through in the gruppetto, a shot at victory in stage 21 on the Champs-Élysées is the reward for the sprinters at the Tour de France. Lotto Soudal's André Greipel will be looking to add his name to the list of winners on the fabled cobbled road for the first time in his career. It’s been a particularly challenging Tour for the sprinters with very few real opportunities for the fast men in the second and third weeks.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
