2012 Tour de France Results: Thomas Voeckler Captures Stage 10 Victory

The 2012 Tour de France resumed on Wednesday with Stage 10 running from Mâcon to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine. At the end of the 194.5 kilometer course, Thomas Voeckler came away with the win at 4:46:26. Voeckler was one of five riders in contention for the victory, but it was he and Michele Scarponi who escaped from the other three riders.

Voeckler and Scarponi battled the last meters, but Voeckler was able to edge ahead of him by three seconds. Jens Voigt made a late charge, but he was seven seconds behind when all was said and done.

There were no changes in the general classification after this stage. Bradley Wiggins still wears the yellow jersey and maintains a +1:53 lead over Cadel Evans, last year's Tour winner. Voeckler wears the King of the Mountains polka dot jersey.

Off to the Alps on Thursday!
