Cancellara Wins Tour TT; Contador Seals Overall

Team Saxo Bank's Fabian Cancellara (SWI) won the Tour de France time trial from Bordeaux to Pauillac.  The Time Trial World Champion covered the 52K course on a Zipp Super-9 Disc and a Zipp 1080 in a time of 1:00:56.

Spain's Alberto Contator, twice the winner of the Tour, sealed the overall Tour victory by besting Andy Schleck (LUX) by 31 seconds.  Contador and Schleck were both riding Zipp Super-9 discs.  Contador opted for the Zipp 808 front while Schleck chose the deeper 1080 front wheel.

Cancellara's stage victory marked the sixth official victory for Zipp at the Tour.
