The final week of the 2012 Tour de France begins on Monday. As the most important and grueling cycling race in the world enters its final seven days, British rider Bradley Wiggins remains the overall general classification leader. The Tour is now his to win or lose.
Monday's Stage 15 will be a 158.5km ride from Samatan to Pau. The stage is not particularly tough and it is likely that it will culminate in a sprint finish. The final rest day will be on Tuesday, so expect the participants to ride hard as the stragglers attempt to pick up some time. There are only three small climbs in the stage; two category fours and a category three. After the horrific mountains, this will almost seem like a reprieve.
