Tour de France 2012 Stage 16 Results: Thomas Voeckler Takes The Stage, Bradley Wiggins Retains Yellow Jersey

Stage 16 of the 2012 Tour de France is now complete after Wednesday's 197-kilometer ride through the Pyrenees from Pau to Bagneres-de-Luchon. The first of two difficult, back-to-back mountain stages was won by Thomas Voeckler. He managed to edge out Chris Anker Sorensen and claim both the stage and the polka-dot "King of the Mountains" jersey.

In the general classification, Bradley Wiggins stayed in the yellow jersey and held tight to his lead over Sky teammate Chris Froome and Vincenzo Nibali of Liquigas. Defending champion Cadel Evans fell off the pace and dropped out of the top five in the general classification standings, effectively ending any realistic chance of a repeat.
