Alexander Kristoff claimed the first major victory for his new team Uno-X, powering to victory in Lagos on stage 1 of the Volta ao Algarve.
The Norwegian beat Jordi Meeus (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Søren Wærskjold, Kristoff’s lead-out man. The trio denied favourite Fabio Jakobsen, with the European champion losing contact with his Soudal-Quickstep team on a short climb inside 2km to go and having to fight his way back to the front.
The stage win gives Kristoff the first leader’s jersey of the Portuguese Pro Series stage race, with a four-second lead over Meeus and six on his teammate Wærskjold.
More to come.
