Tour de France 2012, Stage 9: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

The 2012 Tour de France will once again be on the move Monday morning with Stage 9 unfolding.

The day will be a time trial of 41.5 kilometers, something to start off with just to break a slight sweat right? The beginning of the stage will take place in Arc-et-Sanons before winding its way to the end in Benancon. It shouldn't be to taxing on many of the cyclists considering the flat nature of the day.

It should be a good afternoon for sprinters who are looking to make a move into contention or for the leaders to begin breaking away. Bradley Wiggins is currently wearing the yellow jersey and will look to widen the gap between he and the others.

On Tuesday, the riders will receive a day of rest before hitting the trail once more on Wednesday.


If you're away from a television but want to catch all the action, you can do so with a subscription to Tour de France Live.

TV: NBC Sports Network

Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
