Bennett moves up, another top five result for Battaglin in Giro

During the tenth stage of the Giro d'Italia, Team LottoNL-Jumbo has shown itself. In the longest stage of this Giro, the formation of manager Richard Plugge was represented in the early breakaway by Koen Bouwman. Because the number two in the overall standing was dropped from the first peloton, the breakaway didn't get a lot of space. After it was caught, Bouwman and Gesink managed the pace of the peloton for more than one hundred kilometres in favour of team leader George Bennett and Enrico Battaglin. The latter eventually finished fourth. For Team LottoNL-Jumbo it’s already the seventh top five result out of ten stages in this Giro. Due to the disappearance of Chaves, Bennett moves up one place in the general ranking. He is now sixth. Watch and listen to the reactions of Koen Bouwman and sports director Grischa Niermann.
