Carrick-on-Suir native Sam Bennett is having an incredible Giro d’Italia. With two stage wins already under his belt, he is really the one to watch. He decided to have a bit of fun on yesterday’s stage!
The Bora-Hangrohe’s Irish sprinter Sam Bennett is a real crowd pleaser! Between his entertaining tweets and his race shenanigans, we are big fans! Yesterday’s stunt was our favourite yet when he proceeded to wheelie up Monte Zoncolan even though he was at the very back of the race!

Quando passa il primo è bello, ma quando passa l’ultimo… è bellissimo ????

On Thursday, Sam powered to victory on Stage 12 of the Giro to claim his second stage win. On Friday 11 May he won his first stage, breaking our long, long Giro drought. The last time an Irishman won one was in 1987.
The 27-year old hasn’t come completely out of the blue, however, Sam has won 22 other pro races in his career.
Keep doing what you are doing Sam! All of Ireland is behind you!
When your last to the top of Zoncolan but win all the style points ?
