Cees Bol (Team Sunweb) took his fourth career victory, and first of 2020 in Tavira at the Volta ao Algarve on Friday, overcoming rivals such as Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-QuickStep), Elia Viviani (Cofidis) and Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates).

 The 24-year-old triumphed on the 202km stage 3, emerging the best on the uphill finish in the 'town of churches' 25km west of the Spanish border. Bol adds the win to a burgeoning collection which includes Nokere Koerse, the final stage of the Tour of California and stage 1 of the Tour of Norway, all coming last season.
