George Bennett wins GranPiemonte presented by EOLO 2020

12/08/2020

New Zealand’s George Bennett (Team Jumbo – Visma) has won the 104th edition of GranPiemonte presented by EOLO, raced over a 187km route in the splendid Langhe hills, from Santo Stefano Belbo to Barolo. The second-placed finisher was Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates), and third was Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin – Fenix).

FINAL RESULT

1 – George Bennett (Team Jumbo – Visma) – 187km in 4h38’23”

2 – Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) s.t.

3 – Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin – Fenix) at 4″

Speaking seconds after the race finish, the winner George Bennett said: “This is an emotional victory. I only have two races in which I can ride for myself this year – today and Il Lombardia on Saturday. It’s great to win here. I was afraid the race wasn’t hard enough but my boys made it harder and I went at the right time when it was half raining, half dry. I’m super happy.
