    It didn’t look like he was gonna’ take it. But Oakley Star Cyclist Levi Leipheimer clipped rival Damiano Cunego for a grand overall victory at the Tour de Suisse after charging back from a two-minute deficit in the final stage’s individual time trial. Finishing off in 31 hours, 45 minutes, 2 seconds, he edged the yellow jersey-holding Cunego, who finished four seconds behind. With the successful result, Levi moves into the Top 20. Fellow Oakley athlete Fabian Cancellara smashed his way to his own win around the 20-mile circuit in the ninth stage – complementing an impressive time trial triumph on the first day.
