Sam Bennett says the next few years will be his best opportunity to compete for sprints in Grand Tours, and he'll consider his options if Bora-Hansgrohe don't give him chances at the Giro d'Italia or Tour de France.

The team said they will not take him to the Giro d'Italia, where he won three stages in 2018, opting instead for home star and German champion Pascal Ackermann. With Peter Sagan leading their Tour de France team, Bennett has no chance there either.
