The 2012 Tour de France is showing a little light at the end of the tunnel, with Stage 15 starting the final week of the event on Monday morning (for those in the United States).
Bradley Wiggins of England is leading the pack by just over two minutes, and looks to become the first English rider to ever win this prestigious event. Wiggins has been adorned with the yellow jersey for most of the race and certainly isn't looking to relinquish it now..
The 15th stage will be another obstacle in the way for these men, with a 158 kilometer ride waiting before a day off on Tuesday. The journey will commence in the large town of Samatan before coming to an end in Pau, which marks the 64th time the Tour de France has visited the city.
The end of the stage might turn into a furious finish that favors the sprinters, with a considerably flat conclusion to the stage. There are three climbs, but none greater than a Category 3 at Côte de Simacourbe (6.3 percent gradient).
