Sam Bennett has carried on where he left off last year by proving to be the most successful sprinter in the peloton, as results go so far in 2021. The fastest man currently in cycling graces the cover of Procycling magazine’s June issue, wearing the green jersey he won in last year’s Tour de France, becoming the first pure sprinter since Mark Cavendish in 2011 to win the competition. 

The Deceuninck-Quick Step Irishman has now won stages in all three grand tours, and, with seven victories this year goes into the Tour in July as one of the favourites to win the most stages. Yet, speaking to Sophie Hurcom, Bennett explains why he doesn’t need to go around shouting about his ability, as his results speak for themselves.
