by VeloClub

Australian Will Clarke was best on Saturday’s third stage of the Volta a Portugal, hitting the line in Macedo de Cavaleiros two seconds clear of nearest rival Marco Frapporti (Androni Giocattoli – Sidermec) and a cool 54 seconds up on Benjamin Thomas (Equipe Cycliste Armee de Terre), Alex Diniz (Funvic Soul Cycles-Carrefour) and Micael Isidoro (Louletano-Hospital de Loule).

The result saw Rui Vinhas (W52-FC Porto-Porto Canal) take over as race leader, bumping Daniel Mestre (Efapel) down to second, three minutes 19 back.

The 2.1 event continued on Sunday with a 191.9 kilometre stage to Senhora de Graca. Spanish rider Gustavo Cesar Veloso (W52-FC Porto-Porto Canal) was best, five seconds quicker than Radio Popular Boavista’s Daniel Silva. Vinhaus finished 35 seconds back in fifth place and retained his lead. Veloso moved to second overall, two minutes 48 seconds in arrears.

The race continues until Sunday August 7.
