Bora-Hansgrohe have accepted that a "disappointed" Sam Bennett will need time to "get over" his omission from the team’s Tour de France squad and their decision to focus on the overall classification with Aleksandr Vlasov.  

Bennett returned to Bora-Hansgrohe this year after a previous six-year stint between 2014 and 2019, hoping to sprint again at the Tour after his final season at QuickStep ended in injury and a fall-out with the team manager Patrick Lefevere.
