Lotto Belisol: SerVaaS feat. André Greipel – Live Your Dream

Live Your Dream is not only the slogan of Lotto Belisol, but now it’s also the title of a dance song of team doctor Servaas Bingé and André Greipel. During the Tour of Turkey Greipel got talking with doctor Bingé about his song ‘De Ronde’, which was released at the time of the Tour of Flanders. The German champion told he’d like to sing and release a song as well. And so it all began…

Servaas Bingé, team doctor: “André and I got the idea of making a song together for the Tour de France. It had to be a song about keep believing in yourself and the team, planning your personal route without giving up and living your dream. Back home I started working on it together with Jan Borré, my partner in crime for music. It was quite a job to find the right style and feeling that suits André, especially because we mainly compose Dutch singer songwriter songs. We actually made two songs and the look in André’s eyes made me see which one was his favourite. Making a list of the songs André played in the team bus gave us an idea of his s style of music…”

“Then we went to Cologne with a mobile studio. It was a fantastic experience to work with André on something which he isn’t familiar with. He loved to immerse himself in the world of music recording and we had fun. Two days later he became German champion for the second time in a row. By recording this song with André we realized a part of his and our dream.”

André Greipel: “The idea came very spontaneously. Servaas, one of our team doctors, has a musical background, and his song about De Ronde often was a topic in the conversations within the team. Then we got the idea to do a unique musical experiment. The team slogan Live Your Dream and the lyrics make it very credible. The atmosphere while recording was great, we laughed a lot and had so much fun. I won’t do any gigs (laughs). All my focus is of course on the Tour, but something like this definitely has to be possible. It was fun to do.”
