Dutchman Bram De Groot (Rabobank) has claimed the overall victory in the 53rd UNIQA Classic after the final stage ended in Linz today. De Groot placed fourth in the stage that was won by Kjell Carlström (Liquigas-Bianchi), but the 14 second gap they had to the yellow jersey in the main peloton was enough to give De Groot the win over Murillo Fischer. But the pair finished on the same time, so it was necessary to go back to the fractions of seconds recorded in the prologue, and De Groot finished up with just three tenths of a second advantage.

"I completely discounted that," said a surprised De Groot after learning that he'd won. "We were very strong in the last stage and really earned the victory. But Fischer was not too disappointed either, despite the close finish: "I won two stages here in Austria; what more could I want?"

Finnish champion Kjell Carlström won the five man sprint ahead of Dainius Kairelis (Amore e Vita) and Maurizio Carta (Miche). "My team worked super today, we controlled the peloton for the whole day. Today's stage win means a lot to me. Austria is a good place for me."
