Sam Bennett is set to ride two Grand Tours in the same season for the first time after confirming his participation in the Vuelta a Espana, which starts next week.

He'll be riding as part of the Deceuninck-Quick-Step team, looking to build on his green jersey-winning performance at last month's Tour de France.

"Delighted to get the call up for La Vuelta," he said on Twitter.

"This will be my first time doing two grand tours in one season, it will be great to push my limits and see what I'm capable of."

Bennett will be joined in the team by previous stage winner Zdenek Stybar, as well as Michael Morkov and New Zealand champion Shane Archbold.

Deceuninck-Quick-Step director Rik Van Slycke added: "Our team is a mix of youth and experience, who can deliver some really nice results in Spain.

"Sam is going there after a great Tour de France, and he'll count again on a strong lead-out train, Styby was very motivated to race a Grand Tour this year after dropping out from our Le Tour squad due to that knee injury, while the three young guys on the team – two of whom are neo-pros – will make another important step in their development.

"We will give our best out there and hopefully have a good and rewarding three weeks."
