Frank Schleck is not the only Team Saxo Bank rider to benefit from a strong performance at the Tour de Suisse. Oakley’s Fabian Cancellara’s victory in the opening short time trial in Lugano gained the Swiss star two places in the overall rankings, and Cancellara has jumped from ninth to seventh place, with 210 points.

Cancellara’s improvement sees Tour of Italy winner Ivan Basso lose a spot and drop from seventh to eighth, while fellow Italian Michele Scarponi also slides down a spot from eighth to ninth.
