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.

Jens Voigt finished third in one of the most difficult climbs in pro cycling.

Belgium's Bradley Wiggins retained the yellow jersey, despite attacks from reigning champion Cadel Evans, Italy's Vincenzo Nibali and Jurgen Van Den Broeck of Belgium.

Evans is 1:53 back of Wiggins in second place overall. Christopher Froome, Wiggins' teammate, trails him by 2:07 and is in third. Nibali is in fourth place, behind by 2:23. At 3:02 behind Wiggins, Russia's Denis Menchov is in fifth.
