Volta ao Algarve #2: Valgren hangs tough for top 10

Tadej Pogacar (UAE-Emirates) won the 2nd stage of the Volta ao Algarve, climbing to victory ahead of Wout Poels (Team Sky) and Enric Mas (Deceuninck-Quickstep).

The tough final 8km climb of the 2nd Volta ao Algarve stage did not neccasarily suit any of our Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders, but that did not stop Michael Valgren from going toe-to-toe with the specialist climbers.

Our Danish star dug deep to match the pace set by Team Sky on the slopes of the Alto da Foia, eventually hanging to finish in a credible 10th place.
