US Postal rider Floyd Landis won the final stage of the Tour of the Algarve Sunday. Combined with his 2nd place in Saturday's time trial, the stage win gave Landis the overall victory. US Postal also had Victor Hugo Peña in 2nd, and Lance Armstrong in 5th overall.
"We have a strong team," said Landis. "Lance is generous, so he said I could go for the win if I was feeling well. Everybody worked together.
"It's good for the team to start the year with a win, so everybody's happy."
