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

After long, grueling weeks, it has all come down to this. The final stage of the 2012 Tour de France will take place Sunday and, barring a catastrophe, Bradley Wiggins of Team Sky will earn his first title in the most prestigious and important Grand Tour of them all.

Heading into Sunday's Stage 20, Wiggins will hold a 3:21 lead in the general classification over teammate Chris Froome. The final ride will be 120km from Rambouillet to the Champs-Elysees in Paris. It is a road stage and the shortest of the tour, which will certainly not be met with argument from the weary riders. The stage is almost entirely flat, with two short climbs near the beginning. You can expect the customary mad dash for the finish line before the awards are handed out.

The coverage of the final stage will begin at 8 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. A recap show will air at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
