‘Tour de France’
As the cyclists race toward the finish line in the City of Light on Sunday, you might want to take some time out of your Friday night to catch Stage 19 (from Bourg-d’Oisans to Le Grand-Bornand). Die-hard fans can tune in to the live coverage at 3 a.m. (you weren’t doing anything at that hour anyway, right?), or you can catch repeats at 11 a.m., and at 5 and 9 p.m. Friday on NBC Sports (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
