2012 Tour de France Results: Garmin-Sharp Places 2 In Top 10 On Stage 15

Team Garmin-Sharp placed two riders in the top 10 of the final results on Stage 15 of the 2012 Tour de France. Christian Vande Velde finished second to stage winner Pierrick Fedrigo, though they both finished the course in 3:40:15. Tyler Farrar finished with the peloton at +11:50 behind Fedrigo.

Garmin-Sharp saw Tom Danielson abandon the race during the early stages of the race and then Ryder Hesjedal shortly after that. The latter won the 2012 Giro d'Italia and wound up with an injury following a crash.

Bradley Wiggins (68:33:21) still wears the yellow jersey and holds a +2:05 lead over Christopher Froome. Peter Sagan holds the green jersey in the points classification with over a 100-point lead. Colorado resident Tejay Van Garderen wears the white jersey as the Tour's best young rider. He holds a +1:54 lead over Thibaut Pinot.

Here is how the top 10 finished:
