Tour de France 2012, Stage 15: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

The 2012 Tour de France continues with Stage 15 on Monday in France. The stage will consist of a 158.5-km trek from Samatan all the way to Pau. The riders making the journey in Stage 15 will hope for no foul play from spectators this time as some tacks were thrown onto the course for Stage 14 causing nearly 30 riders to suffer flat tires.

Stage 15 consists of three different climbs for the riders, starting off with a 2.1-km category 4 climb at Côte de Lahitte-Toupière. That climb will be followed up by a 1.9-km category 3 climb and then a 1.5-km category 4 climb in the final stretch run of the stage.

After a rough finish on Stage 14 with a flat tire, Bradley Wiggins will look to hold on to the yellow jersey on Monday during Stage 15.

Television coverage of the stage is available starting at 8:00 a.m. ET on the NBC Sports Network. You can also watch by subscribing to Tour de France Live online.
