Team Sunweb's Cees Bol has been the fastest man at the final sprint of the third stage at the Volta ao Algarve, grabbing as such his first win of the season.

The final of the third stage at the Portuguese competition was made for the sprinters. Sunweb made sure to work hard in the last kilometres for Bol and it put him at the right position for him to do the last effort and grab the victory in his first race of the season, beating Sacha Modolo (Fenix Alpecin) and Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step).

"It’s a good way to start the season," said Bol at the finish. "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 (Pedersen), and when I saw the sign at 200 metres 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."
