The 2012 Tour de France began Sunday with the Prologue in Belguim, but the first of 20 stages begins Monday with the Liege to Seraing stage.
The 198 kilometers shouldn't give riders too much trouble as the stage is mostly flat. However, there are enough hills to prevent it from being a pure sprinter stage.
Fabian Cancellara enters stage 1 as the leader with pre-race favorite Bradley Wiggins just behind him in second place. Defending Tour champion Cadel Evans begins Stage 1 in 13th place.
Television coverage of Sunday's first stage of the Tour will begin at 8 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. Those who are unable to watch the full day of riding can watch the abbreviated recap on NBC from 4 to 6 p.m. ET. Fans can also watch the Tour online with a subscription to Tour de France Live.
