Tour jury overturn 15 second deficit from stage ten

Leipheimer and Wiggins return to 4th and 5th on GC

The Tour de France race jury took the decision on Wednesday morning to cancel the 15 second deficit that had opened in the peloton in the final kilometres of stage 10 to Issoudun.

Levi Leipheimer (Astana) and Bradley Wiggins (Garmin-Slipstream) had found themselves caught in the second group yesterday. However, today's decision to nullify the time gap returns the riders to 4th and 5th on general classification, respectively.
