Ireland's Sam Bennett has left the Bora-Hansgrohe team after being granted his release.

The 29-year-old won two stages at this year's Vuelta a Espana and had asked for leave the German outfit.

The team opted not to select the sprinter for the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France and he's now in line to join Deceuninck QuickStep for the 2020 season.

"After a great story of success in the past years, Bora-Hansgrohe and Sam Bennett have decided to go separate ways," Bora-Hansgrohe confirmed in a statement.

"Over the last six years, Bora-Hansgrohe developed Sam Bennett into one of the best sprinters in the peloton. Against this background it however became more and more difficult to align the team’s and rider’s goals. Therefore Bora-Hansgrohe management has decided to accept Sam Bennett’s wish to leave Bora-Hansgrohe and continue his journey with another team.

"Bora-Hansgrohe wishes Sam Bennett all the best for his future and hopes that he can live up to his sporting dreams."
Deceuninck Quickstep is keen to acquire the Carrick-on-Suir sprinter with Elia Viviani leaving them to join Cofidis.
