2012 Tour de France, Stage 20: TV Coverage, Route And More

The last stage of the 2012 Tour de France takes place on Sunday, a 120km run from Rambouillet straight to Paris for the traditional finishing circuit on the Champs-Élysées: 8 laps and then a mad dash for the finish line. The General Classification is almost certainly all sewn up and Bradley Wiggins (Sky) is set to become the first British Tour de France champion in history. Even if one of his rivals broke tradition and attacked on the final day, Team Sky would have little trouble countering the attack.

With the GC settled, things turn to the sprinters. Mark Cavendish (Sky) has won the final sprint three years running and undoubtedly has his eye on a fourth. Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) figures to be his main competition. The young rider has the Points Competition all locked up and a victory in the final stage would make a fine closing to winning the Green Jersey in your first Tour de France.

Television coverage of the event begins at 5 a.m. on the NBC Sports Network, with a recap of the entire Tour at 10 a.m. on NBC. Streaming coverage of the event is provided via Tour de France Live, subscription required.
