Tour de France 2012, Stage 19: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

Bradley Wiggins of Team Sky enters Stage 19 of the 2012 Tour de France looking to become the first British Tour de France winner in history. The stage is a 53.5km time trial from Bonneval to Chartres, and time trialing is a specialty of Wiggins. He dominated the mid-race time trial, more than held his own through the mountains, and enters Saturday's stage with a 2:41 lead over his closest rival, Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Cannondale). Nibali is in third, with Wiggins' teammate Christopher Froome between him and the leader. Stage 21 never has an impact on the General Classification, so if Wiggins can win Saturday's time trial he will have locked down the yellow jersey. All things considered, it looks like Bradley Wiggins is just two days away from making history.

Television coverage of the event will be on the NBC Sports Network beginning at 8 a.m. ET. Fans can watch online via Tour de France Live, subscription required.
