Tour de France 2012 Results: Andre Greipel Wins Stage 13, Bradley Wiggins Maintains Lead

Andre Greipel of Germany won Stage 13 of the Tour de France on Saturday, while Bradley Wiggins of Britain remained in control of the race.

Greipel won a photo finish in just under five hours, finishing at 4:47:59, just a hair ahead Peter Sagan of Slovakia.

Wiggins held the lead briefly toward the end of the stage, but fell slightly behind during the furious sprint to the finish. He was evidently trying to allow one of his Team Sky teammates, Edvald Boassan Hagen, but cost himself a chance to win while doing so. Wiggins still kept the yellow jersey and maintained a 2:05 lead over Christopher Froome of Britain.

Saturday brings Stage 14, a 191-kilometer trek from Limoux to Foix.
