Wiggins retains Tour de France lead

Tour de France leader Bradley Wiggins takes his yellow jersey into the Pyrenees as the peloton embarks on the first of three mountain stages likely to reshuffle the overall standings.

As the riders set off on Sunday's 191-kilometer 14th stage between Limoux and Foix, Wiggins led fellow Briton and Sky teammate Christopher Froome by 2 minutes and 5 seconds.

The stage features two major climbs and a technical downhill 25 kilometers from the finish that Vincenzo Nibali is likely to use to gain some time on Wiggins.

The Sicilian climber sits third overall, 2:23 behind, and is now regarded by Wiggins as his main rival.
