DANVILLE — Leopold Konig of the Czech Republic won the seventh stage of the Tour of California in a mountaintop finish Saturday, and American Tejay van Garderen finished third to keep the overall lead for the third straight day.

Koenig, riding for the German team NetApp-Endura team, quickly moved ahead of Janier Acevedo of Colombia with about 400 yards left and completed the 91.4-mile stage from Livermore to Mount Diablo in 3 hours, 54 minutes, 17 seconds.

Acevedo, the Jamis-Hagens Berman rider who won the second stage, finished second in Saturday’s stage that closed with an 11.4-mile climb, seven seconds behind.

“To be truthful, I wish the climb was a little longer,” said Konig, who claimed his fifth career win and first since a 2012 Tour of Britain stage win. “I felt real good. I knew I would have a good race. I haven’t won any big races, so this was very good.”

Van Garderen, the 24-year-old BMC rider from Bozeman, Mont., was 12 seconds back. He took the overall lead with a 10th-place finish in the fifth stage, won the sixth stage and is within a day of his first pro stage race title. The eight-day, 727-mile event concludes Sunday with an 80.7-mile morning road race from San Francisco to Santa Rosa.
