2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge Results: Levi Leipheimer Wins Colorado's Major Race

The 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado has come to an end on Sunday with Levi Leipheimer basking in victory. Though he did not win the final stage from Golden to Denver, Leipheimer had built an 11 second lead over the previous days to edge out Christian VandeVelde. Boulder's Tom Danielson finished in fourth place, just 21 seconds behind Leipheimer.

Daniel Oss won the final stage, just ahead of Elia Viviani who won the previous two stages. Oss finished 30th overall while Viviani was over 26 minutes behind and finished 74th overall.

Leipheimer completed the entire circuit in 20:00:24. VandeVelde and Danielson, second- and fourth-place finishers, are both teammates on Garmin-Cervelo. Tejay Van Garderen took third-place with a 17-second gap ahead of him. That netted him the Best Young Rider victory. Tour de France 2011 winner Cadel Evans finished seventh overall, where he had been the last few days.
