2012 Tour de France, Stage 19 Results

The dominant team of the 2012 Tour de France finished the second long time trial with three men in the top five. Any doubts about the ability of Bradley Wiggins were put to rest today when he dominated the 53km time trial from Bonneval to Chartres to win his second stage of the Tour de France and increase his lead in the general classification. He got to throw a victory salute, punching the air with his right hand as he crossed the line to beat the rider in second place overall, Chris Froome, by 1'16.

Wiggins' victory is sealed.

Vincenzo Nibali had a very good time trial finishing 16th at   0:03:38 behind Wiggins which consolidated his hold on third palce and a podium finish tomorrow.

Today's finishing stage analysis by TdF's Jean-François Pescheux, "A little road stage, the shortest of the Tour (120 km). But it will no doubt be an apotheosis, with the traditional finish on the Champs-Élysées. Always the same, always magnificent since 1975. We already know more or less what will happen: a festive start in Rambouillet, two short hours before things really get going, and then a sudden, spectacular acceleration to mark the peloton’s arrival in the Parisian circuit. All of this before 1.5 billion TV viewers, nothing to sneeze at! For the rest, I do not think any brave riders will be able to slip under the radar of the sprinters' teams. On paper, Mark Cavendish can dream of a fourth straight win."
