    George Bennett is preparing to play a support role in a grand tour during 2019

    George Bennett is preparing to play a support role in a grand tour during 2019


    The Kiwi cyclist is part of the competitive Lotto NL-Jumbo team that has no clear leader.

    Bennett as well as Steven Kruijswijk and Primoz Roglic all finished inside the top ten at a grand tour this year.

    The Kiwi says he'll likely lead the team at one grand tour next year, and be a support rider in another.

    Bennett says being a support rider can create more chances for a stage win, and has other benefits such as avoiding the media after every stage.
