In the aftermath of the accident that has forced Jean-Christophe Péraud out of the Tour de France, a crash that seemed to condemn AG2R La Mondiale in the team standings, things have taken an upward turn for the better with a wonderful display from the French squad at Alpe d'Huez, not only did it earn the stage win Christophe Riblon, but also the good performance of Romain Bardet (17th), and John Gadret (26th). Therefore, as a collective, it has won the stage with a lead of 2'09” over Team Saxo-Tinkoff which maintains its leadership in the general classification with an advantage of 6'05” over AG2R La Mondiale, which is now ahead of RadioShack-Leopard that has dropped 12'29” behind.
