Fabian Cancellara, Tour of Switzerland 2009 stage 9

As expected, Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank) won the Tour of Switzerland on Sunday by gaining more than two minutes on all his rivals in the final 39km time trial around his home town of Berne.

Cancellara started the time trial four seconds down on Tadej Valjavc (Ag2r) in the overall standings. But he quickly passed the little Slovenian and even caught 2008 winner Roman Kreizuger in the final kilometres of the time trial.
