Kasper Asgreen won the Stage 4 individual time trial in the Volta ao Algarve on Saturday, beating Rafael Reis to first place.
The Deceuninck-Quickstep rider was able to finish just ahead of his Efapel rival, and Groupama-FDJ’s Benjamin Thomas followed up in third.
There was drama further back down the pack as general classification leader Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers) suffered a heavy fall on a turn and completed the race while still bleeding down his left side.

That did not prevent him from increasing his advantage over Joao Rodriguez (W52/FC Porto) to 12 seconds.
Asgreen is now 21 seconds behind Hayter overall, with the final stage on Sunday at Alto do Malhao.
