DENVER, Colo. (AP) American Levi Leipheimer won the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and his third stage race title this year with a sixth-place finish in Sunday's sixth stage.

Daniel Oss, who rides for the Italian Liquigas team, won the 70.9-mile final stage of the 518-mile inaugural event in 2 hours, 27 minutes, 8 seconds.

Leipheimer, a Montana native who lives in Santa Rosa, Calif. and competes for RadioShack, assumed his second race lead with a slim victory in the stage 3 time trial and led the race for five of its seven days.

Christian Vande Velde (Garmin-Cervelo) finished second overall, trailing by 11 seconds and Tejay Van Garderen (HTC-Highroad) finished third, 17 seconds behind.

Elia Viviani (Liquigas) of Italy, victorious in stages 4 and 5, was second in the finale.

American Fred Rodriguez, a former three-time national road champion, was third.
