The first mountain stage of the 2012 Tour de France has been completed, and it was won by native Frenchman Thomas Voeckler, who rides for Team Europcar. Voeckler completed the 194.5 kilometer course in 4:46:26, besting Michele Scarponi by three seconds and Jens Voigt by seven seconds. Voeckler and Scarponi were fighting for position for much of the final few meters, but Voeckler was able to come out ahead and claim, at least for the time being, the polka dot jersey given to the race's top mountain rider.

There were no changes to the general classification, with Bradley Wiggins holding onto the yellow jacket with a +1:53 lead over defending champ Cadel Evans. Tomorrow features another mountain stage, with the riders moving onto the Alps.
