Tour de France Results 2012: David Millar Wins Stage 12, Bradley Wiggins Maintains Overall Lead

Garmin-Sharp's David Millar left the Alps in style, taking the 12th stage of the 2012 Tour de France, which traveled from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Annonay Davezieux. Millar was one of five riders who broke off from the peloton, gaining an eight-minute advantage over the course of the 140.4 mi (226 km) stage. All five riders stayed within a second of each other as they headed towards the finish, but Millar was able to hold off Jean-Christophe Peraud for the victory.

The overall leaders all stayed back with the peloton, which allowed Sky's Bradley Wiggins to keep the yellow jersey for yet another day. Wiggins' lead over teammate Chris Froome remained at two minutes and five seconds after Friday's stage.

American Tejay van Garderen is still leading the young rider classification, holding a one minute and fifty four second lead over Thibualt Pinot of FDJ.
