Cees Bol powers to victory on stage 3 of the Volta ao Algarve

Cees Bol (Team Sunweb) beat Sacha Modolo (Alpecin-Fenix) and Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) to the line to claim stage 3 at Volta ao Algarve.

There was no change in the general classification picture as Remco Evenepoel holds on to the leader’s jersey.

“It’s a good way to start the season,” Bol said. “We made some mistakes on the opening stage but today we really nailed it and I’m happy I could finish it off. We’re focusing more on the sprints this year and the guys were really strong today. I followed my lead out, Casper, and when I saw the sign at 200m I just went full gas, and I managed to be first at the line. It’s a sign that I did a good winter and it’s really nice that it paid off today.”

The fight for the overall returns centerstage Saturday for the steep summit finale at Malhao.
