Team Radioshack-Nissan placed four riders in the same group, or within four seconds of current yellow jersey holder Bradley Wiggins, during Stage 8 on Sunday. Thanks to this effort, Radioshack-Nissan finally dethroned Sky Procycling atop the team classification at the 2012 Tour de France. Tony Gallopin and Haimar Zubeldia placed third and ninth respectively, finishing 26 seconds off winner Thibaut Pinot. Frank Schleck and Chris Horner took ninth and tenth, 30 seconds behind the winner.
