Bennett adds to 2017 tally

Carrick on Suir’s Sam Bennett outgunned some of the world’s top sprinters in winning the Munsterland Giro yesterday.

Just millimetres separated the first four at the end of the 198 kilometre race in Germany.

The Bora Hansgrohe rider edged out Phil Bahaus of Team Sunweb, Andre Greipel of Lotto Soudal and Marcel Kittel of Quickstep Floors.

The 26 year old has already notched up stage wins in Paris Nice, the Tour of Slovenia and Czech Cycling Tour this year.
