Sanchez wins first mountain stage as Schleck, Evans and Contador battle in Tour de France

Here’s where to find coverage of the 2012 Tour de France.

Sure, the Tour de France had seen 11 stages pass in this year’s annual event. But the truth is the race REALLY gets started when it heads uphill, as it did today in Stage 12, which featured two huge climbs on the Col du Tourmalet and an uphill finish.

Samuel Sanchez of Spain won the stage, but the big names were right there at the end. Frank Schleck, Cadel Evans, Ivan Basso, Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador were all together on the final climb. Contador, the defending champ, did lose some time in what is beginning to look like a lost cause for him after being involved in several crashes earlier in the tour. Through it all, the Yellow Jersey remains with Thomas Voeckler.
