Bennett: “I didn’t expect to be there”

Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe): "I’m disappointed. I had a good opportunity today but the break did it well and to be honest, I didn’t expect to be there today. But when we saw I could make it over the climb, the boys really committed. They did an incredible job but we couldn’t catch the break. But again, I want to thank the boys, they worked so deep. I’m happy to keep the green jersey, I expected to lose it today. Thanks to the teammates for really looking after me. They did a super job."
