The eighth leg of the 2012 Tour de France was completed on Sunday afternoon, and it was Bradley Wiggins who continued leading the field after a second place finish. Wiggins had held the yellow jersey for two legs now and has a 10 second lead over the second place cyclist, Cadel Evans.
The winner of stage eight: Thibaut Pinot. He won the stage with a 26-second lead over the eight who finished tied for eighth. Despite his dominating performance on Sunday, Pinot still sits outside of the top-10 in the overall standings.
The ninth stage of the 2012 Tour de France will begin on Monday morning. It'll take the riders just 41.5km before their day off on Tuesday. They'll ride from Arc-et-Senans to Besançon in what isn't an overly challenging and scenic ride.
