Another race, another outlandish feat of strength. Remco Evenepoel has long since exhausted all superlatives during his short career as a professional. By now, there's little choice but to rinse them out and use them again. Every demonstration seems just as striking as the one that came before.

The umpteenth display of Evenepoel's still-precocious power came on the rippling road between Vila Real de Santo António and Tavira on Saturday, as he dominated the stage 4 time trial of the Volta ao Algarve. A second overall victory in this race for the QuickStep-AlphaVinyl leader seems inevitable when it concludes atop Alto do Malhão on Sunday.
