Tour de Suisse – Final Results

Frank Schleck has won the final tune-up event prior to the Tour de France claiming the Tour de Suisse on the final day. Robert Gesink had a disastrous final Time Trial and lost the yellow jersey to Schleck who narrowly escaped being overtaken himself by Lance Armstrong. In what had amounted to a GC top ten dominated by strong climbers going into the TT, few lost time to Schleck and Armstrong who both climbed up the GC ladder in the race against the clock. Gesink finished 40th, Uran 28th, Morabito 21st, Rodriguez 41st and Carrera 59th on the day all dropping their chance at the podium. Jacob Fuglsang jumped from 9th to third finishing just 5 seconds behind Armstrong in the overall with a 7th place Time Trial.
