Tour of Poland slightly shifts ProTour standings

The final day of the Tour of Poland saw Johan Van Summeren (Predictor-Lotto) win both the stage and the final general classification Saturday. Van Summeren finished ahead of Robert Gesink (Rabobank) and Kim Kirchen (T-Mobile Team), who also took second and third in the general classification. Murilo Fischer (Liquigas) had been leading before the last stage.

The end of the ProTour stage race brought with it only slight changes to the ProTour standings. Team CSC kept its overall team lead while Liquigas moved from third to second and Caisse d'Epargne from fourth to third because Team Discovery Channel dropped from second to fourth.

In the individual classification, there were no changes to the top six. Italian Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) continues to lead ahead of Alberto Contador Velasco (Discovery Channel) and Alejandro Valverde (Caisse D'Epargne). The latter are separated by just one point.

In the nations rankings, Italy preserved its lead over Spain and Australia in second and third.
