George Bennett picks Giro d’Italia over Tour de France



George Bennett (Jumbo-Visma) has said he doesn’t want to be an authoritarian leader in his Giro d’Italia bid this year, as he prepares to open his WorldTour season in support of Primož Roglič at Paris-Nice from Sunday.

Bennett passed on his own shot to race for the maglia rosa last year in favour of being part of an A-list support cast at the Tour de France, where his Jumbo-Visma team watched in disbelief as Tadej Pogačar swiped the yellow jersey from Roglic on the penultimate stage.
