Levi Leipheimer gave the Discovery Channel a much needed boost as they search for a new sponsor by winning the Tour of California stage race that ended in Long Beach on Sunday.

Cuban sprinter Ivan Dominguez (Toyota-United) surprised the big-name ProTour sprinters by taking the final circuit stage on the Long Beach seafront.

CSC lost the battle with rivals Discovery Channel for overall victory but won the team prize after winning three stages.
