2012 Tour de France, Stage 4: TV Coverage, Route And More

The fourth stage of the 2012 Tour de France gets started on Wednesday morning, beginning in Abbeville, France and finishing up at Rouen, France. Through Stage 3 of the Tour, Fabian Cancellara continues to maintain hold of the individual yellow jersey as the overall leader, as he did through the first two stages, while Bradley Wiggins has moved into second place.

The Stage 4 trek from Abbeville to Rouen will cover 214.5 km with some category four climbs through the stage. This stage of the Tour will be a chance for some of the sprinters to make up ground that was lost during Stage 3 on Tuesday.

A race map and profile of the stage can be found at the official website of the Tour de France.

Television coverage of Wednesday's fourth stage of the Tour will begin at 8 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. Fans can also watch the Tour online with a subscription to Tour de France Live.
