Grand Prix du Portugal a roller coaster

Portuguese rider Vitor Rodrigues has won the Grand Prix in his home country, 53 seconds ahead of Frenchman Antony Roux. Before taking the overall classification, Rodrigues had to endure a bit of a roller coaster.

Winning stage 1 in decisive fashion, he had a lead of 1'17. Rodrigues bridged up to the duo of Simon Geschke (Germany) and Jacques Van Rensburg (South Africa). Geschke had attacked at kilometre 83, with Van Rensburg bridging up shortly thereafter. Rodrigues made his move 20 kilometres from the line and won with 1'17 over Luxemburger Ben Gastauer.
