Spanish Rider Wins Stage 12 - Brit Keeps Yellow Jersey
Stage 12 of the Tour was another stage for the strong climbers. It was won by Joachim Rodriguez Oliver of Spain. Jakob Fuglsang of Denmark finished in second, and Romain Bardet of France grabbed third place. None of these three riders were close enough to the race leaders to impact the overall standings though -- and Christopher Froome of Great Britain still has the Yellow jersey (2' 52" ahead of American Tejay Van Garderen).
Stage 13 will probably still favor the climbers over the sprinters, but the 198.5 kilometer course is not nearly as difficult as the last three stages.
