Tour de France 2013, Stage 17: Route, TV schedule and more

Doug Pensinger

Chris Froome looks to continue his run of dominance during the final time trial of the 100th Tour.

The last time-trial of the 100th Tour de France is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon when the cyclists make their 32 -kilometer journey from Embrun to Chorges. Time is running short for a rider to make a late push on the leaderboard with just five stages left on the Tour.

Chris Froome has held the yellow jacket for nearly two weeks and leads the rest of the field by 4 minutes 14 seconds. He is expected to lead the charge once again on Wednesday, departing Embrun at 4:33 p.m. local time. The afternoon forecast calls for some rain, which could slow him down some, but Froome's had no trouble combating mother nature to this point.

The first time trial was not particularly challenging, but the second one features plenty of hills, sharp turns and is physically demanding in a technical sense. More on the stage can be found here.

The 17th stage will be televised by NBC Sports Network beginning at 8 a.m. ET.
