CHARTRES, France (AP) -- Bradley Wiggins won the final time trial of the Tour de France on Saturday, all but locking up the title of the three-week race.
The Team Sky leader used his specialty to obliterate the pack in the 33-mile ride from Bonneval to Chartres. He's poised to become the first Briton to take home the yellow jersey.
Wiggins punched the air when he crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 4 minutes, 13 seconds for his second stage win of this Tour. Christopher Froome of Britain was second -- 1:16 behind. Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain was third, 1:50 back.
Overall, Wiggins has a 3:21 lead over Froome, who is second, and Italy's Vincenzo Nibali is third, 6:19 back.
The race against the clock in stage 19 set up what is likely to be a largely ceremonial ride onto the Champs-Elysees in Paris for the finale of the three-week race on Sunday.
