Andre Greipel is down with OPL.

Get this HTC thing off me!

Yo, give it a shout.

“Andre Greipel is down with OPL, yeah, you know me, who’s down with OPL, every last homie.” A little twist on the classic OPP lyrics by Naughty By Nature.

Yes, Andre, the G Man, is down with Omega-Pharma-Lotto, kicking it for the pharmaceutical crew in 2011. Look out Mark Cavendish because he’ll be bringing the noise. Now if he can just find a train set.

“In recent weeks there has been much speculation about my impending move to another team,” Greipel posted on his website. “Now it is confirmed. From 1 January 2011, I will be riding with Omega Pharma-Lotto printed on my jersey.”

Greipel is of course thrilled to finally be Cav-free. “The sponsors and management have a clear vision for the further development of the team, which is consistent with my own personal goals,” he said. “We have agreed our sporting and economic terms and the contract will be signed in the coming days.” For, we’re guessing, a Lotto money.

We’ll be looking for some serious banging of elbows and a Mark Renshaw headbutt or two next year. Here’s hoping the OPL and Garmin trains are ready to roll in 2011. Because Cavendish isn’t getting any slower and isn’t planning any addition dental work.

    Greipel is going OG on boy racer. If that doesn’t work, he will take him out back for a well over due blanket party.

      Greipel is not going to take any shit from Renshaw. I can’t wait to see the OPL train bash heads with COlumbia.

        Mike Tyson and Greipel should train together. Tyson can show Andre how to deal with a head butt situation. Just ask Holyfield’s ear. Can’t wait to see that Columbia train wreck.

        Tyson will give Greipel an earful.
