Tejay van Garderen wins USA Pro Challenge

DENVER (AP) - American Tejay van Garderen won the USA Pro Challenge on Sunday, finishing in the main pack in the final stage to complete a sweep of the two biggest races in the United States.

Van Garderen, the 25-year-old BMC rider from Bozeman, Mont., led the race for the final four days, finishing 1 minute, 30 seconds ahead of Swiss Mathias Frank. The Tour of California winner in May, van Garderen was fifth last year in the Tour de France, then slipped to 45th this year.

American Tom Danielson of Garmin-Sharp was third overall, 1:42 behind van Garderen.

Slovakia's Peter Sagan won the final leg for his fourth stage victory of the week, completing the eight-lap, 72.4-mile circuit race in 2:27:15. Canada's Ryan Anderson of Optum-Kelly Benefit was second, a bike-length behind.
