Tour de France 2011: Live Coverage Of Team Time Trial Begins At 8 A.M.

The Tour de France gets back at it bright and early on Sunday morning as the team trial, the second stage of the race, gets underway. Unlike the first stage, which featured the mass of riders known as the peloton to go along with the intermediate sprint and sprint to the finish, Sunday's stage is a race against the clock, with teams set to leave the starting gate together at pre-determined intervals.

Coverage of the team time trial begins at 8 a.m. on Versus. The route for Sunday's race is much shorter, and spans just 14 miles in Les Essarts. But unlike Saturday's stage, those 14 miles will be an all-out sprint, with riders drafting off team members and engaging in a fun cycle where the rider at the front drops to the back as to change the lead racer frequently.

A replay of the team time trials, in condensed form, can be found on NBC at 12 p.m. Versus will also be broadcasting Tour de France related shows throughout the day, including a pre-race show at 7 a.m.
