Today Sam Bennett took another massive win that furthers his journey to the very top of professional cycling. In the Rund um Koln he managed to unleash a massive sprint that saw him catapult himself past Markus Barry, the Belkin sprinter and last years Milan San Remo winner Gerald Ciolek.
Sam was also joined in the top twenty by two other Irish riders, Sean Downey of An Post Sean Kelly Chainreaction cycles who finished a very strong 17th and Matt Brammier in 18th. Another An Post rider, Shane Archbold also came home in 12th. This was a fantastic day for both Irish riders, and the Irish professional team.
Here are some of my favourite shots and video so far ;
Great stuff, well done Sam !
