Here is a recap of the Stage 12 action from SB Nation's cycling blog, Podium Cafe:
Europcar narrowly missed its chance for a third consecutive victory, as did French cycling, when Garmin-Sharp's David Millar outfoxed his breakaway mates to win the 12th stage of the Tour de France in Annonay today. The Scot followed a late move by AG2R's Jean-Christophe Peraud which left Europcar's Cyrille Gautier behind, with Euskaltel's Egoi Martinez and Robert Kiserlovsky. Millar and Peraud rode the last 3km together, with Peraud maneuvering Millar into the front as they began the sprint, but Millar had enough to win his fourth career Tour de France stage.
