Bradley Wiggins rolls into Stage 15 at the 2012 Tour de France in the yellow jersey despite being slowed by a bizarre incident the day before. Wiggins finished over 15 minutes behind the winner Sunday after his tire was punctured by tacks thrown on the course by fans. The incident affected approximately 30 riders but didn't have much of an effect on the overall leaderboard. Wiggins' teammate, Christopher Froome, is still in second place by just over two minutes.
Monday's stage from Samatan to Pau is the last before riders enter the Pyrenees. The 158.5-kilometer trek features a few moderate climbs late in the course, but nothing like the Category 1 endurance tests from the days before, or the days forthcoming. The relatively short ride should be a nice reprieve for riders with a day of rest coming Tuesday.
Stage 15 will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network beginning at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. It will also be shown on Tour de France Live, available online with a subscription.
