Bennett starts season with a win in the opening stage of Vuelta a San Juan


Sam Bennett opened his season and the 2023 Vuelta a San Juan with a sprint victory after out-kicking Michael Mørkøv (Soudal-Quick-Step) and Giacomo Nizzolo (Israel Premier Tech).

“I worked really hard this off-season and all my team mates did too, so it’s really nice to kick off the season on a high note,” Bennett said. “After a not so great season last year it feels like I’ve returned to my old self now.

“It was a fast and hectic finale and I really want to thank my team mates for their perfect work and leadout.”

The race continues Monday in Argentina with the 201.1km second stage from Valle Fértil to Jáchal.
