Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) took his first win of the season on stage four of the Volta ao Algarve, beating João Almeida (UAE Team Emirates) and Ilan Van Wilder (Soudal-QuickStep) in the uphill finish to Alto do Malhão.

The Yorkshire climber showed excellent form on the penultimate stage of the Portuguese stage race, attacking on the final climb of the day and going on to win in the sprint with Almeida. Pidcock launched his attack in the final kilometer of the 2,5km, 9,8% climb, where only Van Wilder and DSM neo-pro Oscar Onley could keep up the pace.

Pidcock's victory sees him take the lead in the race. He holds the yellow jersey five seconds ahead of Van Wilder. Almeida is six seconds into third with the deciding time trial at Lagoa still to come tomorrow.
