An exhausted Levi Leipheimer crosses the line after stage 6's 1200m hilltop climbing finish to the ski-resort town of Malbun.  His second place finish on this stage bumped him up to GC 5th--1:59 behind race leader Damiano Cunego.  This day proved to be a critical one for Leipheimer, as he managed this sub-two-minute time gap until the race's final TT in Schaffhausen.  There, his spectacular TT landed him the overall GC victory by 4 seconds over Cunego.
