Monday is a rest day at the Tour de France with three days of mountain racing in the Pyrenees to follow. Just six more stages remain in the 2014 edition and Italy's Vincenzo Nibali is comfortably in front  with the overall leader's yellow jersey.

He owns an advantage of 4 minutes and 37 seconds over Spain's Alejandro Valverde. Tuesday's Stage 16 is a 237.5-kilometer trek from Carcassonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon, which features five climbs -- the last being of the highest category.
