Tour de France 2012 Results: Bradley Wiggins Wins Stage 9, Increases Overall Lead

Monday's time trial at the 2012 Tour de France proved to be a valuable one for overall leader Brad Wiggins, who put in a stellar performance to increase his overall lead at the tournament from 10 seconds to just under two minutes.

Wiggins completed the 41.5 kilometer course on Monday in 51 minutes and 24 seconds, and has increased his overall lead for the tournament to 1 minute, 53 seconds over Cadel Evans. Wiggins has become the third different British rider to win a stage at the 2012 Tour de France, joining fellow Brits Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome.

Tuesday will be the first rest day for the riders, who will then take the course again on Wednesday for Stage 10, as Wiggins will look to hold his lead over the pack.
