André Greipel // Wo alles anfing

ANDRÉ GREIPEL // Where it all began

The velodrome in Rostock is the birthplace of many cycling legends. Jan Ullrich, Paul Voss and André Greipel all discovered their passion for cycling here. When we visited André in his home country last month, he reminisced with us about the beginning of his career.

As a young cyclist, the velodrome was like a second home for him. Here, drenched in sweat, gasped for air after hard training sessions, fell for the first time and won his first medal. More importantly, however, that time spent at the velodrome in André sparked a lifelong fascination with cycling.

The Ryzon x André Greipel collection pays homage to his career. It reflects the pure passion that took André from the moment he sat on a bike for the first time.
