Sean's Story

Words: Chad Childers Stripes Date: 10 March 2015

Sean 1

It’s amazing what a glowing recommendation from an alumnus of the program can do for your career. Nobody knows that better than Sean Bennett. It was a message from Neilson Powless after the Tour of l’Avenir sent to his former director about how strong Bennett was riding that set the wheels in motion.

“Getting that email from Axel meant the next chapter in my life had begun,” said Bennett. “It has given me the opportunity to pursue this thing I love so much. It’s an unexplainable feeling to be able to live my dream.”

Last year was highlighted by a strong showing at the Tour of Bretagne, one that earned the California native the polka-dot jersey after finishing atop the mountains classification.

Bennett hopes to make his impact in 2018 by “winning some bike races” and making the step up to the World Tour.
