    That is for points, not as impressive as the yellow jersey. but a great achievement.

    Peter Sagan normally wins the green jersey of late.

    Bennett wins green jeresy overall, cemented with a final-stage win in Paris.

    Winning in Paris is a huge thing, he won a Giro finale as well so if he can pull it off at the Vuelta at some stage he will complete the set. Brilliant sprinter and a really likeable guy. When he is in top form he can be untouchable.

    Strange LoI link I see - his dad played for (and managed) Waterford, and then moved to Belgium to play (where Sam was born).

    But Sam grew up in the same town as Seán Kelly, which is a mad coincidence.
