Behind them Van den Broeck (with Schleck on his wheel) was working to limit his losses.

Rodriguez wins stage 12

Rodriguez was the faster man.

Vinokourov comes in third, sacrificed by Contador in the search for a GC time gain.

Van Den Broeck leads in Schleck, Sanchez (orange, hidden) and Kloden.

Brajkovic leads in the Armstrong group a few minutes later. That should be Sandy Casar on the far left.
