2012 Tour de France, Stage 12: TV Coverage, Route And More

Stage 12 of the 2012 Tour de France will span 226 kilometers from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Annonay Davézieux, making it the longest leg of the race. Riders will have to contend with two Category 1 climbs, the Col du Grand Cucheron and Col due Granier, in the first 80 kilometers of the race. The rest of the stage is on a relatively flat plane, however, giving the sprinters plenty of room to show off.

Bradley Wiggins enters the race still in possession of the yellow jersey, and actually widened the lead on his competitors on Stage 11 on Thursday. He is 2:05 ahead of Christopher Froome, his Sky Procycling teammate.

Television coverage of Stage 12 starts at 6:30 a.m. Eastern on the NBC Sports Network.

Complete standings for the race can be found at NBCSports.com. A live stream of the race is also available to subscribers at Tour de France live.
