The Sam Bennett Discussion Thread

Bennett could be looking at winning every sprint he contests and potentially points. Especially if Merlier withdraws like previously.
I would be a surprise to me if he gets the better of Merlier in every sprint the two contest. And if I recall correctly, it's very tough for a bunch sprinter to win the points jersey at the Vuelta?

Good to see him winning again and in a GT too. Hopefully the start of a return to top form. It was getting to the point where you had to start to wonder if he was just never going to get his top speed back.

Yeah the point system got changed so it will be easier as long as the flat stages end in sprints. Jakobsen won last year only winning 3 stages and 2nd in the other two. Versus Degenkolb winning 5 stages in 2012 and only finishing fourth. Bennett to win has to win 3/4 of the next 6 and finish well. Merlier will most likely win stages but who knows if he will actually stay for the whole GT.
