• Australian Dennis reclaims Eneco lead


    BRUSSELS: Australian rider Rohan Dennis reclaimed the overall Eneco Tour race lead on Friday (Saturday in Manila) after his BMC Racing team won the fifth stage team time-trial. The 26-year-old time-trial specialist took the lead from Tinkoff’s Peter Sagan. Dennis had been leading until Wednesday but lost the overnight lead to Slovak Sagan by just seven seconds. But with a powerful team including Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet of Belgium on his side the American BMC team were fastest in the 20.9km run around Sittard-Geleen. The Dutch-Belgian race concludes on Sunday. Dennis, a two-time world champion in team pursuit, held the world hour record for three months last year before it was beaten by Britons Alex Dowsett and then Bradley Wiggins.
