Bradley Wiggins is now the overall leader at the 2012 Tour de France after the seventh stage of the race. He finished in third place overall, just two seconds behind the winner, Christopher Froome. This marks the first time on the Tour that someone other than Fabian Cancellara has held a lead.
Froome won the seventh stage in four hours, 58 minutes and 35 seconds. In what was a true test of strength and endurance on an uphill finish, Froome really made a statement with his victory. He now sits in ninth place overall, one minute and 32 seconds back of the leader.
Stage eight of the 2012 Tour de France will commence on Sunday. It'll take the cyclists from Belfort to Porrentruy.
