Tour de France 2011: Live Coverage Of Stage 5 Begins At 7:30 A.M.

The 2011 Tour de France continues early Wednesday morning as the fifth stage of the race -- Carhaix to Cap Frehel -- gets underway. Versus will begin broadcast of the competition at 7:30 a.m. EDT.

The fifth stage is a 164.49 km trek north from the western metropolis of Carhaix to Cap Frehel. Built by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, Carhaix is considered one of France's oldest cities, and sits directly between the Montagne Noires - also known as the Black Mountains - and the Monts d'Arrée. As the riders make their way to Cap Frehel, they will travel from an elevation of 293 meters to one of just two meters. A course comprised of steep cliffs against a backdrop of lush wilderness await the leaders as they close in on their destination.

A replay of stage five will be broadcast on Versus at 12 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. Versus will also continue coverage and analysis of the 2011 Tour de France throughout the day, including a pre-race show scheduled at 7 a.m.
