3 from 3 for Sammy B

Sam Bennett notched up his hat-trick of stage wins at the Tour of Turkey today.

The Carrick on Suir rider once again proved fastest at the end of the 130 kilometre third stage of the World Tour event.

The Bora Hansgrohe sprinter also extended his lead in the overall classification to 14 seconds over Edward Theuns of Trek Segafredo.

Bennett is likely to relinquish the leaders jersey on tomorrow’s mountain stage but will be hoping to get back to winning ways before the race finishes in Istanbul on Sunday.
