The aerodynamic Ridley Noah SL is the choice of big German sprinter, André Greipel, for the 2016 Tour de France

#PelotonServiceCourse traveled to Normandy for the first week of Le Tour. We spent a few days with Team Lotto Soudal to learn about the bikes André Greipel will be racing. First up, his Ridley Noah SL. As the big German aims to add to his 10 Tour stage wins this is the bike he rides for the sprint stages. The frame weighs less than 1000grams, is stiff enough to handle his huge watts and benefits from a host of aero features.
