Bay Area rider Levi Leipheimer will be riding for Omega Pharma Quick Step as the 2012 Tour de France finally gets underway on Saturday in Liege. NBC is offering a bundle subscription service for the entire Tour in case you don't have the necessary cable package to follow along with the race via your television.
All the action will be available with a subscription to NBC Sports' Tour de France Live. Users have two subscription options -- they can either purchase a pass for the entire 2012 Tour de France for $29.99, or they can pay $4.99 per stage. All Tour de France Live coverage will be archived and available on demand until August 31.
For a cycling enthusiast, this is a pretty solid deal. Especially considering that the subscription service allows you to track and stream the race on a number of different mobile devices.
