After winning the first stage and scoring a 4th place yesterday, the BORA – ARGON 18 sprinter won ahead of Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and Ramunas Navardauskas (Garmin-Cannondale).

With his victory, Bennett takes again the lead in the General Classification as well as the lead in the sprint classification and takes the special prize for the best rider of the year 1990. Before tomorrow’s decisive individual time trial over 26.1 kilometers, Jan Barta of BORA – ARGON 18 is in a promising position. In the last two years, Barta scored a 3rd and a 2nd place in the time trial.


Sam Bennett after his second stage win explained “The sprint was quite hectic. We were all together for the last five kilometres and I tried, despite the high speed, to put myself in a good position, which wasn’t easy at all”.

“I kicked quite late, only 100 m before the finish. It was real tough final. My team again did a great job. I am happy to have conquered the yellow jersey once again. But in the time trial I don’t see many chances for me, to defend my lead”.

“Anyway, it’s so fun to race here in Bavaria. The streets are awesome, the atmosphere is awesome and the audience is completely thrilled. A great race!”
