A day after Thor Hushovd handed the new Cervélo TestTeam a stage win at the Tour of California, German Heinrich Haussler duplicated that effort by sprinting to victory in stage one of the Vuelta a Algarve in Portugal. The 24-year-old won the bunch sprint ahead of Dutchman Dennis Van Winden (Rabobank Continental) and the Koldo Fernandez (Euskaltel-Euskadi), taking the overall leadership of the five-day tour.

"It's nice to get back to winning stages after being so often second or third," Haussler said to dpa. The Australian-born German citizen took second overall and the best young rider's prize at the Tour of Qatar in January.
