2012 Tour de France 12th stage: bike shop Ontario
Are you following the Tour de France with our bike shop in Ontario, California?
Britain's David Millar claimed an emotional win in the twelve stage yesterday after what has been a very difficult tour for the Garmin-Sharp team. The team has lost a number of riders including their team leader, Ryder Hesjedal.
Bicycling.com asked David Millar about his 12th stage victory and the team's recent difficulties. "It's massive. It's been a horrific tour for us so far," Millar said. "I really wanted to do something...prove that we're still here and show that Garmin-Sharp is one of the best cycling teams in the world."
France's Pierre Rolland took his maiden victory in the 10th stage, followed by another win in 11.
Britain's Bradley Wiggins further secured his lead against Australia's defending champion Cadel Evans in the 11th stage. Evans had begun stage 11 in second place, only one minute, 53 seconds behind Wiggins, but dropped to fourth overall at 3:19.
