Appollonio wins first stage and Caldeira maintains leadership

Italian Davide Appollonio (Amore & Vita-Prodir) today won the first leg of the Tour de Portugal by bike after winning the first leg, with Portuguese Samuel Caldeira (W52-FC Porto) maintaining the lead.

At the end of 174.7 kilometers, between Miranda do Corvo and Leiria, Appollonio was the fastest, cutting the goal in 4: 47.08 hours, the same time of the Portuguese Daniel Mestre (W52-FC Porto) and compatriot Matteo Malucelli (Caja Rural), second and third place respectively.

Samuel Caldeira was delayed by a crash, but the incident took place within the final three kilometers, so he retained the lead with both Swiss Gian Frieseck (SRA) and Spaniard Gustavo Veloso (W52-FC Porto).
