2012 Tour de France, Stage 11: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

The toughest parts of the Tour de France keep on coming. Stage 10 was formidable as it provided a test of the mountain rides that were forthcoming. Stage 11 will bring even more heat, as it promises plenty of climbs. Stage 11 has an average 6.2 percent incline throughout the course, with the steepest uphill incline coming at 9.5 percent. Bay Area local Levi Leipheimer appears to be out of contention as Great Britain's Bradley Wiggins takes the mantle up to this point.

The course runs from Albertville and will end up finishing in La Toussuire-Les Sybelles. NBC Sports Network will air all of the day's action live beginning at 5 a.m. PST in the Bay Area. Online coverage of the Tour can be found with a subscription to Tour de France Live. Below you can see a virtual tour of the entire course courtesy of SB Nation Studios.
