Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck Quick Step) won the first stage of the Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta ahead of Elia Viviani (Cofidis, Solutions Credits) and Matteo Trentin (CCC Team). Martin Laas (Bora Hansgrohe) had his chance to shine with his team counting with him in the sprint finishes at this tour. " I got boxed in at the final 500m and there was nothing to do. I missed my opportunity in the final. I think i can sprint here with the best guys, we will have another chance on the 3rd stage," explained the Estonia's fast man.
