SAM BENNETT NARROWLY missed out on victory at Scheldeprijs 2021 today, pipped in a sprint finish by Belgium’s Jasper Philipsen. 

Scheldeprijs is a single-day event staged across Flanders and the Netherlands, and it appeared Bennett was well-placed for victory in the closing stages of a brutal race. Heavy winds split the peloton early in the race, and they were later split again by a crash. 

Bennett was in a strong position as the race climaxed in a sprint finish for the line, but he was narrowly beaten to the line by Philipsen. Bennett’s team-mate, Britain’s Mark Cavendish, finished third.
