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.

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