Jakobsen strengthens grip on the red jersey

Fabio Jakobsen made another step to winning the second distinctive jersey of his career, after sealing another top 3 finish on the last Volta ao Algarve stage which gave the sprinters a second and last opportunity to be in the spotlight, following the one on the opening day.

Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s riders were all employed to set the pace as soon as a breakaway formed, and they did just that while at all times protecting general classification leader Remco Evenepoel, who ended up spending a quiet day in the peloton. The trio up the road were pulled back with more than 20 kilometers to go and the sprinters’ teams stormed to the front, knowing positioning was key on the technical finish in Tavira, which included several roundabouts and tricky corners.

Yves Lampaert and Florian Sénéchal worked hard for Fabio Jakobsen, who launched the sprint down the left-hand side of the road, after rounding the final bend, and concluded in third position, behind Cees Bol (Team Sunweb) and Sacha Modolo (Alpecin-Fenix). This result cemented his lead in the points standings, which the Dutch Champion is firmly in charge of, and ensured that all four Volta ao Algarve distinctive jerseys remained in the Deceuninck – Quick-Step team, with the yellow, mountain and youth jerseys being held by Remco Evenepoel.
