2012 Tour de France, Stage 13: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

With 12 stages of the 2012 Tour de France completed, it's Great Britain's own Bradley Wiggins who has a firm grip on the yellow jersey with a 2:15 lead.

Heading into Stage 13, the English rider looks to be the clear favorite going forward, even after an overzealous fan burned him on the arm during Friday's action.

On Saturday, the 99th edition of this great race will provide a challenge. The stage will start in venerable Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and finish up in Cap d'Agde after a grueling 217 km. It will be a picturesque day for anyone lucky enough to be in attendance and a beauty to watch on television, with much of the day having the backdrop of the Mediterranean.

The only major climb is up the Mount-Saint-Clair, which is a mere 23 kilometers from the finish line. The end of the stage does feature what could turn into a furious sprint, something to keep an eye on down the stretch.

If you can't be near a TV and would like to catch all the action, you can watch it all with a subscription on Tour de France live.

TV: NBC Sports Network

Time: 7:00 a.m. CT
