Tour de France 2012: Stage 10 Brings Difficult Col du Grand Colombier Climb

Tour de France competitors were given a day off on Tuesday before Stage 10 arrives on Wednesday.

Stage 10 will bring one of the toughest tests for riders yet, as they will have to climb the Col du Grand Colombier for the first time in the 99-year history of the Tour.

SB Nation put together a video preview of Stage 10, which can be seen below.

Bradley Wiggins won Stage 9 in a landslide and holds the yellow jersey by one minute and 53 seconds over his closest competitor, Cadel Evans. Evans, the defending Tour champion, said he believes "the Tour will open up more and more" over the next couple, difficult weeks as riders get tired.

Full standings for the Tour de France can be found at NBCSports.com.
