Del Toro takes top-5 in Algarve TT

Young Mexican puts in impressive ride against the clock

Isaac Del Toro put in a brilliant time trial on stage 4 of the Volta Algarve today in Portugal, taking 4th place on the stage which started and finished in Albufeira (22km).


On the undulating loop of Albufeira, Del Toro clocked the fastest early time and sat in the hot seat, covering the course at a blistering average speed of 47.5kmph. The best time in the end went to Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quickstep) who took a comfortable win and also the race leaders jersey.


Del Toro : “For the first TT of the year I’m really happy with it. There was strong rivals here and some big names so it feels nice and motivating to be among them. This is the biggest TT I’ve done in my career so far so it’s nice that it went well. I’m still learning and taking it all in this new experience and I’m really enjoying it so far.


Antonio Morgado continues to climb the GC, now sitting in 9th place at 1’39”.
