2012 Tour de France, Stage 14: TV Coverage, Route And More

Sunday brings us Stage 14 of the 2012 Tour de France, a 191km run from Limoux to Foix. It's a high mountain stage with two Category 1 climbs in the second half of the race, but as far as high mountain stages go it's less severe than others. That means we're unlikely to see much of a change in the GC standings, but there's plenty of opportunity for a daring rider to make off with the stage victory.

Young riders may find themselves willing to take chances on treacherous descents, trying to make a mark on the race. French riders are always waiting for opportunities to impress in the national race, and Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) is a strong rider who surely wants to represent France in its own race. With mountains just tall enough to make a difference but not so tall that the heavyweights have to make their move, Stage 14 presents a big opportunity for lesser known riders to make a bid for the win.
