PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -

Tom Danielson successfully defended his Tour of Utah title Sunday, while former Tour de France champion Cadel Evans proved he's rounding into form by winning his second consecutive stage.

Evans, who was tuning up for the Vuelta a Espana, won a sprint out of a five-man breakaway ahead of Wilco Kelderman and Winner Anacona to capture the mountainous seventh stage.

Danielson, who trains in Tucson during the winter months, followed a few seconds later, waving to the crowd in Park City as the Garmin-Sharp rider celebrated his second overall win. The victory should give Danielson a big confidence boost as he heads to the USA Pro Challenge in Colorado.

Jure Kocjan won the points competitions as the top sprinter, while Joey Rosskopf was awarded the king of the mountains jersey. Dylan Teuns was best young rider.
