Ireland’s Sam Bennett continued his red-hot 2021 form with victory in today’s Brugge-De Panne one-day race.
Bennett, the reigning Tour de France green jersey winner, broke his WorldTour one-day drought with his victory.
Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Fenix) took second with Pascal Ackermann (BORA-Hansgrohe) completing the podium.
It was Bennett’s fifth victory of the season in only his seventh mass sprint in WorldTour races.
Bennett, 30, dominated the sprints in both the multi-day races he has ridden this year, winning twice each on the UAE Tour and Paris-Nice.
