| Irish rider Sam Bennett has said it would be “fantastic” to ride the Tour de France, after winning his second professional race. |
|Speaking after he sealed his second victory of the season in the Rund um Köln, Bennett said "it would be fantastic to be in the Tour de France, but I’m still a neo pro, and it’s a lot to ask of me, my first year." |
|He said that although his team NetApp Endura, had been given an wild card entry to the Tour, "I can’t really expect to be selected, because there are so many fantastic riders on the team [...] they’re going to be trying to do something in the mountains for sure." |
|The 23-year-old Bennett finished ahead of Barry Markus of (Belkin) and Gerald Ciolek (MTN - Qhubeka), on a time of 4 hours 39 minutes 28 seconds.|
