Cadel Evans won his second consecutive stage at the Tour of Utah today, after winning the 7th and final stage of this year’s race.
Meanwhile, Tom Danielson successfully defended his title to claim the overall victory.
Evans emerged as the winner of a five-man sprint finnish, ahead of Wilco Kelderman and Winner Anacona. Danielson followed a few seconds later, waving to the crowd in Park City as the Garmin-Sharp rider celebrated his second overall win. The victory should give Danielson a big confidence boost as he heads to the USA Pro Challenge in Colorado.
Jure Kocjan won the points competition as the top sprinter, while Joey Rosskopf was awarded the king of the mountains jersey. Dylan Teuns was best young rider.
