Sam Bennett accomplished another milestone in his sparkling run of cycling form this afternoon.

The Carrick man won his first ever World Tour one-day race at Brugge-De Panne in Belgium, after surging at the finish to win a bunch sprint at the 202 kilometre event.

It’s his fifth win in the last month, in what has been a sterling start to the 2021 season.
