2012 Tour de France, Stage 15: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

Stage 15 will give riders a bit of relief before the 2012 Tour de France enters the treachery of the Pyrenees on Wednesday. The relatively short 158.5-kilometer trek from Samatan to Pau features a few moderate climbs in the final 50 kilometers, but nothing like what riders went through in the Alps, or will go through following Tuesday's rest.

Bradley Wiggins will wear the yellow jersey Monday. He was one of 30 riders affected by a bizarre incident Sunday. Fans threw tacks onto the course, puncturing Wiggins' tires as well as several other riders'. The incident didn't affect the top of the overall classification, however. Wiggins still leads by 2:05 over teammate Christopher Froome in second place. Tejay Van Garderen is still the top-ranked American at 6:57 off the lead in seventh place.

Stage 15 will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network beginning at 8 a.m. ET. It will also be shown on Tour de France Live, available online with a subscription.
