Pierre Rolland of France won Stage 11 of the Tour de France on Thursday, but Bradley Wiggins of Britain increased his overall lead and is threatening to run away with the title.
Riding the 92-mile trek from Albertville to La Toussuire, considered the most challenging stage on this year's Tour, Rolland blasted his competition. He finished 55 seconds ahead of his closest competitor, Thibaut Pinot.
Wiggins crossed the finish line 57 seconds behind Rolland, but still managed to boost his overall lead and strengthen his choke hold on the race. Cadel Evans, last year's Tour champion, dropped from second place to fourth and now stands 3:19 behind Wiggins. Christopher Froome took over second place, but is 2:05 behind Wiggins.
