2012 Tour de France, Stage 20: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

The 2012 Tour de France began on June 30. Now, 23 days later, the 20th stage will serve as the final race of the tour, and a champion will be crowned.

British rider Bradley Wiggins has essentially wrapped up the title, leading teammate and fellow Brit Christopher Froome by 3:21. George Hincapie, a Queens, New York native, enters Stage 20 in 38th place, 1:30:38 behind Wiggins.

Stage 20 is a 130 kilometer course taking riders from Rambouillet to one of Paris's most famous streets, the Champs Élysées. It is a mostly flat route with few climbs/hills. Mark Cavendish has won the last three Stage 20 races, making him the heavy favorite despite a poor showing at this year's Tour de France overall.

Stage 20 will be shown on NBC Sports Network beginning at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. A recap of the race and the 2012 Tour de France as a whole will be on NBC at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. Tour de France Live is also available on the computer and on various mobile apps.
