Chris Froome moved into second place in the Tour de France behind fellow Team Sky rider

Bradley Wiggins and appeared so strong in the finale of stage 11 that he had to wait for his leader.

On a 148-kilometre route from Albertville to La Toussuire, which Wiggins had described as the toughest day of the route to Paris on July 22, the 32-year-old Londoner increased his advantage over Cadel 
Evans (BMC Racing) to three minutes 19 
seconds.

The defending champion was overtaken in second place by Froome, who now sits 2:05 behind, with Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Cannondale) third, 2:23 adrift.
