Vuelta 2020 Favourites stage 4: Bennett vs BORA

Three days of torture for the fast men turns into a golden opportunity. The route of the 4th stage is a red carpet ride to a sprint finish in Ejea de los Caballeros. Sam Bennet and Pascal Ackermann are the stellar sprinters at La Vuelta. (Slideshow route/profile)

The confrontation is spiced up by the fact that the two were team mates in the past few years until Bennett moved to Deceuninck-QuickStep after breaking free from BORA-hansgrohe. The Irishman made his dream come true with several stage wins at the Tour de France. He topped it off by taking home the green jersey.

Ackermann won two stages at the Tirreno-Adriatico this season. La Vuelta is his first Grand Tour of 2020.

Jasper Philipsen is a talented Flemish sprinter, who could pose a threat to the two. He outgunned Ackermann once in this year’s BinckBank Tour.
