REUTERS - Ireland’s Sam Bennett completed his set of Grand Tour victories when he prevailed in the 10th stage of the Tour de France yesterday.


The Deceuninck-Quick Step rider, who already had three Giro d’Italia and two Vuelta stage wins to his name, narrowly outsprinted Australian Caleb Ewan and Slovakian Peter Sagan for his first win in cycling’s biggest event.


The result also meant the 29-year-old Bennett reclaims the green jersey for the points’ classification from triple world champion Sagan.


Sagan is looking to win the jersey for a record-extending eighth time while Bennett is hoping to become the first Irishman to take the points classification since Sean Kelly in 1989.
All 22 teams set off after every rider tested negative for Coronavirus on Monday’s rest day, with Deputy Race Director Francois Lemarchand waving the flag for racing to commence.
French health authorities and organisers Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) have said that should two members of a team, riders or staff, test positive for the Coronavirus the whole outfit will be kicked out of the race.
