After completing his collection of Grand Tour stage wins yesterday, Sam Bennett is back on the road today.
The eleventh stage of the Tour de France takes the peloton on a 167 kilometre trek to Poitiers.
It’s the same town where Bennett’s fellow Carrick-on-Suir native Sean Kelly won his first Tour stage in 1978.
Bennett holds a 24-point lead over Peter Sagan (pr: Sah-gan) in the race for the green jersey.
Primoz Roglic wears the overall leader’s yellow jersey.
