One of the last riders from Team Qhubeka-NextHash to find a contract for 2022, Sean Bennett has finally found a team with the new China Glory Cycling Team created by former pros Maarten Tjallingii with sports directors Amaël Moinard and Lionel Marie.

Bennett, 25, is one of a dozen riders announced for the team, half of whom are Chinese and half non-Asian. South African Willie Smit (Burgos-BH), Dutch riders Reinier Honig and Etienne van Empel, and New Zealander Hayden Strong are all part of the roster.
