2012 Tour de France, Stage 9: Route, TV Schedule, Live Updates And More

The 2012 Tour de France will showcase Stage 9 on Monday morning.

The day will feature a time trial of 41.5 kilometers, not a bad workout to get the day going right? The start of the race will take place in Arc-et-Sanons before finally coming to an end in Benancon. The ride itself isn't strenuous for the riders, as the course is mostly flat.

It could be a good day for sprinters who are looking to gain some time back or for the leaders to begin breaking away from the pack. Bradley Wiggins is currently wearing the yellow jersey and might be able to finally create a legitimate cushion from would-be contenders.

On Tuesday, the riders will finally get a little bit of a rest with the day off, before hitting the trail once more on Wednesday.


If you're away from a television but want to catch all the action, you can do so with a subscription to Tour de France Live.

TV: NBC Sports Network

Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
