Almeida Takes Stage Honours in Luxembourg Opener

Almeida Takes Stage Honours in Luxembourg Opener

Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Luxembourg) - Press Release: The 23-year-old leads the race after his fifth victory of the season.

João Almeida became the first Portuguese since the legendary Acacio da Silva, in 1990, to win a stage at the Tour de Luxembourg, which got underway Tuesday afternoon with a short and hilly 140km stage that culminated in a reduced bunch sprint.

An interminable succession of climbs awaited the peloton, who decided to allow a six-man group to build a maximum gap of four minutes after rolling out from the country’s capital. Deceuninck – Quick-Step hit the front some twenty kilometers from the start, asserting their control over the race and steadily chewing into the gap of the men up the road. Fausto Masnada, who made his first appearance in almost three months for the Wolfpack, was among those devoting all their energies to bringing back the breakaway, which was mopped up inside the closing three kilometers.
