Andre Greipel of Germany won Stage 4 of the 2012 Tour de France on Wednesday. Greipel used a sprint to pull ahead of the pack for the day and win his second stage of the race so far.

As the race enters its fifth stage, Swiss cyclist Fabian Cancellara still has the yellow jersey, which he has had since the first stage of the race. Trailing him by seven seconds is Bradley Wiggins of the UK.

Stage 5 starts in the historic Norman capital of Rouen and runs for 196.5 km to the city of Saint-Quentin. It is mostly a flat stage through the north of France. Get a complete map of the fifth stage as well as details about the route on the Tour de France website.
