France: Bradley Wiggins of Britain took the overall lead of the Tour de France on Saturday after the seventh stage, which was won by countryman Christopher Froome in the race's first summit finish this year.
Wiggins received the leader's yellow jersey from Fabian Cancellara following the 199-kilometer trek from Tomblaine up to the Vosges mountains ski station of La Planche des Belles Filles. The Swiss time-trial specialist had led since winning the opening prologue a week ago.
Wiggins, who began the day seven seconds behind Cancellara in second place, now leads defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia by 10 seconds. Vincenzo Nibali of Italy is also 10 seconds off the pace in third.
