Tour de France 2012 Standings: Fabian Cancellara Still In Yellow For Stage 5

Stage 4 at the 2012 Tour de France wasn't short on excitement, as a crash at 2.6 kilometers to go knocked out several riders for the much-anticipated sprint finish. Andre Greipel earned the stage win with some well-executed help from his Lotto-Belisol teammates. The overall standings were not affected, however, as judges gave the peloton the same time as the winner. Fabian Cancellara will once again wear the yellow jersey when Stage 5 gets underway Thursday.

Peter Sagan will hang onto the green jersey as the points classification leader. Several riders dropped in the standings, however -- notably Mark Cavendish, who was anticipating a stage win. Cavendish dropped from third to fourth overall. Cancellara dropped from second to sixth.
