2012 Tour de France, Stage 10: TV Coverage, Route And More

The 10th Stage of the 2012 Tour de France gets underway Wednesday morning under sunny skies in France, with Great Britain's Bradley Wiggins wearing the yellow jersey.

All of the riders got a day of rest on Tuesday, but will now be tested to their limits once again. Stage 10 promises to be brutal, with the course taking the cyclists from Macon to Bellegarde-ser-Valserine. In case your unaware, it also happens to be the first of three stages in the Alps. Great news for the climbers, not so much for the sprinters.

There's also a new twist to the race: a ride up the Col de Grand Colombier. This marks the first time in the 99-yeaer history of the Tour de France that the competitors will traverse this obstacle.

For a quick look at the way Wednesday will shake out, take a look below at SB Nation's Virtual Tour video:
