Nice win and nice trophy, too.
It is always nice to see when a domestique shines. And, that's what happened to George Bennett at the 104th Gran Piemonte, Barolo Italy.
"I only had two days of the season left where I could ride for myself - today and Il Lombardia on Saturday. It's great to win here. The rest I go back to being a domestique, our team has some of the best riders in the world.
I waited until the hardest part of the race, I was really worried it wasn't hard enough, so I asked the boys to make it as hard as they could.
I'm really happy, I heard on the radio that Wout had won in the Dauphine, Roglic winning everywhere, everybody's winning and I just wanted to get in on the action."
