Stage 16 of the 2012 Tour de France will begin on Wednesday morning. The ride will take the cyclists from Pau to Bagnéres-de-Luchon, which spans across 197 kilometers. That's the second-longest remaining stage on the Tour, and it's sure to be an interesting ride as they go through the high mountains.
Bradley Wiggins currently leads the field by two minutes and five seconds over Christopher Froome and others.. Pierrick Fedrigo won Stage 15 of the Tour, but he is nowhere near Wiggins on the leaderboard. The riders had a much-needed rest day on Tuesday.
