Stage 14 of the Tour de France is the first in the Pyrenées, the steep mountains that traverse the border between France and Spain, but, according to the Tour's official website, it's "more of an appetizer than a mountain stage proper." The riders will never really leave the foothills of the Pyrenées but, at 191 kilometers with some sections at an 18 percent grade, it's a challenge to all -- climbers in its distance and all-around riders with its hills.

Bradley Wiggins of the United Kingdom continues to hold onto the yellow jersey and he's two minutes ahead of his teammate, Chris Froome. Wiggins grabbed the jersey in the first mountain stages, so it would be surprising to see him relinquish it during Stage 14.

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.
