2012 Tour de France, Stage 16: TV Coverage, Route And More

After a day of rest, the riders at the 2012 Tour de France will face one of their toughest tests yet Wednesday on Stage 16. The 197-kilometer ride features two Category H, the hardest in cycling, and two Category 1 climbs before settling down for what should be a speedy descent finish.

Bradley Wiggins will wear the yellow jersey once again, as he has for the last eight stages. He holds a 2:05 lead over his Sky Procycling teammate, Christopher Froome, in second place. Tejay Van Garderen is still the top-ranked American in seventh place at 6:57 off the lead.

Stage 16 will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network beginning at 6:30 a.m. Eastern Time. It will also be shown on Tour de France Live, available online with a subscription.
