Bradley Wiggins of Great Britain is holding the lead after 12 completed stages of the 2012 Tour de France, with a +2:05 buffer. Wiggins was thought to be a serious contender heading into the race, and now has a firm grip on the yellow jersey.

Heading into Stage 13, Wiggins appears to be the undeniable favorite even after a crazy spectator burned him on the arm during Friday's action.

On Saturday, the Tour de France will continue to provide a major challenge. The stage will begin in Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and finish in Cap d'Agde after a tough 217 km. It will be a picturesque day for anyone viewing the affair whether in person or on the television, with a majority of the day having the Mediterranean in the background.

The only major mountain is the Mont-Saint-Clair, which is only 23 kilometers from the finish. The end of the stage does feature a sprint, something to watch as the riders come into the home 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: 6:00 a.m. MT
