W52/FC Porto's Joao Rodrigues claimed victory at the Volta ao Algarve after overhauling yesterday's leader Ethan Hayter.
Hayter held the lead after Stage 4 on Saturday but the Ineos Grenadier could not hold on as the Portuguese attacked him on the climb towards the finish.
The defeat will come as a blow after Hayter crashed at a sharp turn on Saturday's event, leaving him bloodied and perhaps decisively injured on the day and subsequently on the follow-up stage.
