The first WorldTour stage race of the year kicked off in fine style with victory for Sam Bennett and his oh-so-slick Deceuninck-Quickstep team. The Irish champion pipped Jasper Philippsen (UAE Team-Emirates) with Erik Baska (BORA-hansgrohe) rounding out the podium.
The Northern hemisphere may still be wrapped up in cosy knitwear, but it’s the height of summer down under and that means the cycling season is in full swing. This weekend saw the culmination of the Australian National Road Championships and it’s two Mitchelton-Scott riders – Amanda Spratt and Cameron Meyer – who will wear the green and gold in the 2020 peloton. There was sharp smart racing, selfless teamwork and tears a-plenty on the podium.
