Tony Martin wins Tour of the Algarve

Tony Martin wins Volta ao Algarve 2013

German Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) won the final time trial of the 2013 Volta ao Algarve to take the overall win on Sunday.

World time trial champion Martin beat the next fastest finisher - Polish team-mate Michal Kwiatkowski - by a convincing margin of one minute and seven seconds to finish atop the leader board. New Zealander Jesse Sergent (RadioShack-Leopard) was third on the stage, 1-15 adrift of Martin.

Kwiatkowski finished second behind Martin in the general classification, with Lieuwe Westra (Vacansoleil-DCM) in third.

Twenty year old Josh Edmondson (Sky) continues to impress in his debut year with Sky. Having finished in seventh spot on Saturday's mountain stage to Alto do Malhao, Edmondson went on to post a respectible time trial time to finish 16th overall.

Overnight leader and stage three winner Sergio Henao (Sky) finished 14th in the TT to slip to 12th overall.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
