An Evenepoel cruise missile sets off on a time trial and makes a choice to achieve overall victory in the Tour of the Algarve

An Evenepoel cruise missile sets off on a time trial and makes a choice to achieve overall victory in the Tour of the Algarve

Remco Evenepoel (Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl) won stage four of the Algarve Tour by force majeure, a 32.2-kilometre time trial between Villa Real de Santo Antonio and Tavira. Our compatriot beat two-time European Test Champion Stefan Kung and completely destroyed the opponents for the final classification. Evenepoel starts the final stage as captain with a 1’06” over Hayter, 1’25” over McNulty and 1’30” over Daniel Martinez. In principle, this should be enough for a second overall victory in Portugal.

This time Remco Evenepoel tried his big goal and wanted to lay the foundation for his second overall victory on the Algarve Tour, which he also won in 2020.

Evenepoel fired from a rifle like a bullet. On the first intermediate point, he was 9 seconds faster than Küng. At the second intermediate point, the bullet became a cruise missile, because then it came no less than 51 seconds faster than the Swiss specialist. The contenders for the overall victory were already behind.

In the end Evenepoel was about a minute ahead of Küng (57″ 51). Ethan Hayter came in third at 1’05 in 34, Tobias Voss in fourth (1’11 in 02) and Brandon McNulty fifth (1’24 in. 46).

Tomorrow, the challenging final stage of the Tour of the Algarve will be led by a finish on the Alto de Malhao (2.6 kilometers at 9.3 percent), which was also climbed 25 kilometers before. But with her closest competitor ahead of more than a minute, Evenepoel is in principle no longer allowed to give away the loot.
