The cyclists in the 2012 Tour de France got a much needed day to rest on Tuesday, but now it's time for the second half of the race. Bradley Wiggins currently holds a slight lead over the field, but that could certainly change as the mountains come into play in the very near future.
Here is a map of where the cyclists will ride on Wednesday. It's quite the journey from start to finish.
You'll notice the mountains will come into play towards the back end of the stage. Be sure to check out the video listed below for a virtual tour of what's to come on Wednesday.
NBC Sports Network will air all of the day's action live beginning at 5 a.m. PST. That's 8 a.m. for you folks on the east coast.
