Tony Martin of Germany won Sunday's ninth and last stage, a 26.9-kilometre time trial around Liestal, in a provisional time of 32 minutes, 21 seconds.

Switzerland’s Olympic time trial champion Fabian Cancellara finished second, 17 seconds back, while American David Zabriskie clocked the third-best time, 29 seconds behind.

Seven-time Tour de France winner Armstrong moved up to second overall after finishing 11th in the stage with a time of 33:11. Cancellara finished 60th overall.

Schleck dedicated his victory to fellow Luxembourg cyclist Kim Kirchen, who was still in an induced coma on Sunday after a heart attack on Friday night.

"Me, Andy and my entire family really hope that things will go better quickly," Schleck said. "My victory is for him."

The Tour de France starts on July 3.
