The reality of Bradley Wiggins winning his first Tour de France is becoming more and more likely with each passing stage.
Currently holding a 2:05 lead over Chris Fromme, Wiggins will look to at least remain in the thick of things with assistance from his SKY teammates during Thursday's Stage 18 from Bagnères-de-Luchon-Peyragudes as he maintains his status as the holder of the yellow jacket.
The 143.5 km (89 mile) stage marks the final trip through the mountains, boasting two major climbs beginning at the 17km and 95km marks, as racers will return to flat racing beginning on Friday and through the weekend into Paris.
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.
