Algarve (5) - Meurisse performs solidly after injury

Algarve (5) - Meurisse performs solidly after injury

In the final stage of the Volta Algarve (2.HC) a difficult task was waiting for the riders. On the way to the Alto Malhao the riders had to overcome some difficult climbs. The stage was ridden at a more than strong pace. After a crash in the opening stage, Xandro Meurisse felt good again on Sunday. He stayed for a long time with the favorites and finished 13th on the final Malhao climb. A great achievement with an eye on the upcoming weeks.
