Andre Greipel has signed a two-year contract with Fortuneo-Samsic. The German rider has put an end to eight years in Lotto Soudal and starts a new adventure with the French team.

Greipel is one of the most prolific sprinters of his generation with 153 victories in the professional peloton, 22 of them in Grand Tours.

"I expect a lot from my new formation, I want to be inspired by its young and free spirit but I also expect confidence, commitment and a team spirit," said the German. "Cycling is a team sport, to win you have to have a strong team. I will help to develop this talented young generation while pursuing my personal goals.

"Next season, I want to be 100% of my abilities. I want to bring my sporting qualities but also my personality and my experience. I look forward to discovering my new role in this new environment. I understand and speak a few words of French but after the first races I should be much more comfortable."
