If you’re anywhere near a TV, you owe it to yourself to turn on Versus right now.
The Tour de France is in the last 25 miles of the toughest mountain stage of the year. There’s a lead group of six riders off the front, a chase — and the Schleck brothers pushing the pace in the peloton. They’re about 5 minutes back, but are sure to close.
Johnny Hoogerland, the King of the Mountains leader, is off the back at the moment after a break.
