Bennati looks to defend lead

It was a perfect day for Lampre-Fondital in yesterday's fourth stage of the Tour de Pologne, as the team controlled the race throughout the day before bringing their sprinter in position for the sprint, duly won by Daniele Bennati. With victory, Bennati also took the race lead from Fabrizio Guidi of Phonak.

"Today [Thursday], I accomplished a very good sprint, also thanks to the work of my team-mates," said Bennati in a team statement, who took his sixth season victory and sixteenth career win.

"The victory and the leader jersey makes me very happy; tomorrow, I will try to defend my lead in the overall standings."
