In March, George Bennett was preparing for a rare chance to lead Jumbo-Visma in a Grand Tour at the Giro d'Italia. Fast forward a few months, and a global pandemic and general reshuffle of ambitions has seen the specialist climber postpone his Giro quest in order to form part of Jumbo-Visma's Tour de France challenge.

Bennett is of course no stranger to Jumbo-Visma's desire for high performing mountain domestiques, having helped to guide Steven Kruijswijk to third in last year's Tour before then shepherding Primož Roglič to a mightily impressive maiden Vuelta a España title.
