Tour de France 2012 Results: Thomas Voeckler Wins Stage 10, Bradley Wiggins Maintains Overall Lead

Thomas Voeckler of France won Stage 10 of the Tour de France on Wednesday, but Bradley Wiggins retained the overall lead after the climb through the Col du Grand Colombier.

Voeckler edged stage runner-up Michele Scarponi of Italy by three seconds, with 40-year old Jens Voigt of Germany in third place four seconds behind Scarponi. Wiggins finished in 13th place for the stage, 3:16 back of Voeckler but in plenty of time to retain the yellow jersey.

Wiggins now leads defending champion Cadel Evans by 1:53. Christopher Froome is in third place, 2:07 behind Wiggins.

Thursday brings stage 11, which will take the riders from from Albertville to La Toussuire and contains two of the toughest climbs in cycling.
