Voeckler Wins Stage 10 Tour de France 2012
July 11, 2012 2 Comments
Big climb of the day includes the first HC climb of the Tour, the Col du Grand Colombier.
Sagan now has only a 27-point lead over Goss in the points ranking for the green jersey.
Former rider Charles Wegelius said about today’s stage:
“There’s a little bit less time to the finish than there was in the Dauphine. But with yesterday’s rest day and time trial before this stage, it has breakaway written all over it. Getting a guy in the break is a bit of a numbers game but hopefully the right guy can get in the right move.
“With the accidents we’ve had there are some extremely strong riders still a bit further behind than you’d expect and that might make it a bit more interesting for them to go with breakaways. I think that Sky have an extremely strong team and all the capabilities to control the race over every terrain.”
