THOUSAND OAKS (AP) – Chris Horner won the Tour of California with a solid performance in the final stage on Sunday, holding off RadioShack teammate Levi Leipheimer by 38 seconds.

 

The 39-year-old Horner was the oldest rider to finish the race.

 

The 16-year veteran led the overall standings after each of the final five days, easily hanging on for his first Tour of California title.

 

Horner rode most of the final two stages alongside Leipheimer, the three-time race champion. Garmin-Cervelo’s Tom Danielson finished third, and teammate Christian Vande Velde was fourth.

 

Matthew Goss won the 80.2-mile final stage from Santa Clarita to Thousand Oaks, outsprinting his fellow leaders on the final lap.
