The current leader, Bradley Wiggins did his best to keep pace with his main competitors and will retain the yellow jersey for the 10th straight day. Wiggins finished the stage in 12th place, seven minutes behind Voeckler.
Wiggin's teammate Christopher Froome remained in second place overall as their team, Sky Procycling is continuing their dominance over the rest of the field.
Wiggins currently holds a two-minute lead over Froome and with just four stages remaining it would be surprising to see anyone but Wiggins win the Tour de France.
