Giro d’Italia: João Almeida Finishes Fourth Overall at Grand Tour Debut

Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Italy) - Press Release: The 22-year-old netted Portugal’s best ever result at the Corsa Rosa after an amazing three weeks.

João Almeida ended the Giro d’Italia on a high note, taking fourth on the flat 15.7km-long individual time trial in Milan and moving up one place in the general classification, a result which no one would have imagined when the race started in Palermo three weeks ago. A World Tour rookie which was originally supposed to race the Vuelta a España, Almeida was drafted into Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s team for the Giro d’Italia after an amazing second part of the season – garlanded with podium finishes at the Vuelta a Burgos, Giro dell’Emilia and Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali – and made the most of this opportunity.
