Tour de France 2012, Stage 11: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

After a challenging mountain ride on Wednesday in Stage 10, the Tour de France riders will face another challenge Thursday with the second straight mountain stage.

Although Stage 11 is one of the shorter stages at 148km, it is also one of the more challenging with virtually no flat terrain. The day will begin in Albertville and finish in La Toussuire-Les Sybelles. The average incline during Stage 11 is 6.2 percent with the steepest grade coming in at 9.5 percent.

Bradley Wiggins enters Stage 11 wearing the yellow jersey with 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans 1:53 behind in second place. Wiggins' Sky Procycling team is expected to be one of the strongest teams in the 11th stage. They are currently in second place behind the Radioshack-Nissan team.

Television coverage of Thursday's 11th stage of the Tour will begin at 7 a.m. EDT on the NBC Sports Network. Fans can also watch the Tour online with a subscription to Tour de France Live.
