Chris Horner has defied sporting convention by wrapping up victory in the Tour of Spain Sunday.

The American, who rides for the RadioShack-Leopard team, maintained his 37-second advantage over Italian Vincenzo Nibali, the reigning Giro d’Italia champion, after the final stage in Madrid.

Home hope Alejandro Valverde, a former winner of La Vuelta, finished third.

Australian Michael Matthews won the final stage after a bunch sprint, but all the focus was on Horner in the red jersey of overall leader as he finished safely in the main bunch.

Horner, whose best finish in the Tour de France is 10th place, also played a similar role for the now disgraced Lance Armstrong with the Astana and RadioShack squads, but has achieved his best results since his infamous compatriot retired.
