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

On Wednesday morning, the fourth stage of the 2012 Tour de France gets underway with a day of drama set to unfold once again.

The day begins in Abbeville, France with the riders embarking on a 214.5 km excursion before finally hitting the finish line in Rouen, France.

After the first three stages of the Tour, Fabian Cancellara has taken the lead and because of that, continues to be adorned with the yellow jersey. So far, Cancellara has been the only one wearing it since the end of the first stage. Many people's favorite to take the title, Bradley Wiggins, is right on his tail in second place.

Wednesday's ride will only have a few mountains to traverse, all of which are category fours. Due to the nature of this stage, sprinters will have an opportunity to make hay and put themselves back among the top of the heap after a grueling stage on Tuesday.

For a full map of the stage, please take a look at the official website of the Tour de France.
