Watch Sam Bennett absolutely nail sprint win


Sam Bennett took the opening stage at the Tour de Slovenia with a fantastic finishing kick and thanks to a really good lead-out.

The Irishman was ahead of a crash that occurred well inside the last kilometre yesterday. And he simply powered his way up the home straight for a clear win.

He said that with his Bora-hansgrohe team riding so well, anything was possible.

“I must admit that today I didn’t expect stage victory,” he said. “I’m still feeling tired from the Giro and I’m surprised with this amazing result.

“After the crash in that last corner positions changed and I saw my opportunity for a victory and I took it. Thanks to my team I did it.”
