Rolling on

Last weekend saw Cândido Barbosa, David Livramento, Tomas Metcalfe and their Palmeiras Resort/Prio/Tavira cycling team back in the saddle for the 3rd Tour of Albufeira.

Also known as the ‘Jose Martins Trophy’, the three-stage race reached the finishing line Sunday noon at which point unheralded Tavira colleague Samuel Caldeira took victory. Next on the domestic agenda for the Eastern Algarveans, who also claimed the white and green jerseys, will be the Tour of the Alentejo boasting five stages from Vila Nova de Milfontes to Évora between April 1 and 5.
