Bradley Wiggins entered Monday with a slim lead over the field at the 2012 Tour de Frace, but he was able to break the competition open with an incredible run during the Stage 9 time trial.

Wiggins completed the 41.5 kilometer course Monday with a time of 51 minutes and 24 seconds, and saw his lead over the field jump all the way to 1 minute 53 seconds. Cadel Evans of Australia is currently in second place.

Wiggins is the third different British rider to win a stage so far during the 2012 Tour, joining fellow countrymen Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome.
