Astana team has been winning left and right since being informed that they wouldn't be invited to this year's Tour de France, leaving Alberto Contador in the situation of not being able to defend his 2007 title.
While Levi Leipheimer came 14 seconds short of taking the victory and ended up in third, the team from Kazakhstan won the teams classification. They came ahead of CSC by 3'30. Team Type 1 was third – 4'56 back – while High Road, with overall winner Kanstantsin Siutsou, took fourth spot, 6'13 behind Astana.
Next stop for the team is the Tour de Romandie, which has become one of the bigger highlights of the season after the Tour and Giro non-invites.
