After Thomas Voeckler won Stage 10 of the 2012 Tour de France, Bradley Wiggins still has the yellow jersey.

Thomas Voeckler of France won Stage 10 of the 2012 Tour de France on Wednesday, climbing the Colombier and finishing three seconds faster than the second-place Michele Scarponi of Italy. Voeckler led a five-rider breakaway.
