Preview: 2015 Tour de France — Stage 12

Lannemezan to Plateau de Beille (195km)

Thursday, July 16th | 5:15 a.m. EST – 11:25 a.m. EST

Twenty years after the death of Fabio Casartelli, the Tour is returning to the Col du Portet d’Aspet. It then heads toward Plateau de Beille, which many underestimate. For fans, the Tour’s big summit is always Alpe d’Huez. But for the riders, Beille is much more difficult; some suggest that only Mont Ventoux compares in difficulty. This may be the day when Nairo Quintana (Movistar) finds his wings.
