Tour de France 2012, Stage 7: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

Stage 7 of the 2012 Tour de France begins on Saturday morning with the riders starting off at Tomblaine and finishing up the 199-kilometer trek at La Planche des Belles Filles. The stage will give way to the riders who are better at climbing than sprinting, as it features two 3.1-km category 3 climbs on the route as well as a 5.9-km category 1 climb.

Through six stages of the Tour de France, Fabian Cancellara still holds the yellow jersey with Bradley Wiggins bringing up second place.

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

Television coverage of Saturday's seventh stage of the Tour will begin at 8 a.m. EDT on NBC. Fans can also watch the Tour online with a subscription to Tour de France Live.
