Tour de France 2012, Stage 17: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

Riders wrapped up Stage 16 of the Tour de France on Wednesday. Thomas Voeckler won the stage, one of the most difficult stretches of the course featuring two Category H climbs. Cyclists take on Stage 17 Thursday.

Bradley Wiggins still has the yellow jersey, and looks like a favorite to win the whole thing with a 2:05 lead over Chris Fromme. Both men will battle it out over the 142.5 km stretch that is Stage 17 on Thursday.

Stage 17 is the final stage that runs through the mountains, with two serious climbs at the 17km and 95km marks. The race then gets much flatter as the riders head to Paris. Stage 17 starts at Bagnères-de-Luchon-Peyragudes.

Cycling fans can see all the action live starting at 8 a.m. Eastern on the NBC Sports Network. A live stream of the race will also be available at Tour de France online, with a subscription.
