Thomas wins Tour of the Algarve

Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas has won the five-stage Tour of the Algarve for the third stage-race victory of his career.

The Welshman held a 27-second lead going into the final stage, which was won by Andre Greipel, and stayed out of trouble to secure overall victory.

Thomas, who had led the race after winning stage two, finished ahead of second-placed Michal Kwiatkowski.

The win for the 28-year-old comes on the same day that Team Sky’s Chris Froome won the Ruta del Sol in Spain.

Thomas’s only other stage-race wins had been in the Bayern-Rundfahrt, which he won in both 2011 and 2014.
