Swiss Fabian Cancellara (CSC) won the Tour of Denmark on Sunday, while German Robert Forster (Gerolsteiner) won the sixth and final stage.

In the overall standings, Cancellara, who grabbed the yellow jersey in Saturday’s fifth stage, finished 20 seconds ahead of Australian teammate Stuart O’Grady and 51 seconds ahead of German Thomas Ziegler (T-Mobile).

Forster won Sunday’s 154.5km final stage between Gilleleje and Copenhagen. T-Mobile’s Olaf Pollack came in second, followed by Magnus Backstedt (Liquigas-Bianchi).

Sixteen teams and 128 riders competed in the 872.3km route through Denmark. The first stage started Wednesday in Frederikshavn, northern Denmark.

Ivan Basso, who was barred from the Tour de France and suspended by Team CSC in a doping scandal, won the race last year.
