Ryder Hesjedal's time wearing the maglia rosa (pink jersey), as well as his place atop the leaderboard, came to an end following Stage 10's conclusion. Joaquim Rodriguez won the stage by two seconds and by six seconds ahead of then-ledder Hesjedal. Due to the awarded time bonus, Rodriguez came out ahead of Hesjedal by 17 seconds, creating that much of a gap between the lead and second place.
Hesjedal has a 15-second lead ahead of current third-place occupier Paolo Tiralongo. In a tie for fourth place, Roman Kreuziger and Benat Intxausti Elorriaga are 52 second behind. Ivan Basso at +0:57 is the only other race within one minute of Rodriguez.
Among Hesjedal's teammates on Garmin-Barracuda, Peter Stetina is in 20th place with a 2:03 gap ahead of him. Christian Vande Velde has fallen a bit behind and is now 2:11 behind the leader. No one else is as close, with Jack Bauer the closest at 55:36 among the pack.
