Tour de France Stage 12 Winner
Garmin-Sharp's David Millar took his fourth career Tour de France stage win and claimed Great Britain's fourth of this year's race when he outsprinted Ag2r-La Mondiale's Jean-Christophe Peraud to win stage 12 into Annonay Davézieux. The two riders were part of a five-man breakaway also including Robert Kiserlovski (Astana), Cyril Gautier (Europcar) and Egoi Martínez (Euskaltel) who built up a lead of more than 12 minutes on the bunch towards the end of the longest stage of the race.
Tour de France Betting Odds: The riders in the 2012 Tour de France will reach stage 12 of their journey on July 13, only 9 days before the most important race of the year finishes up in Paris. Stage 12 is a two-headed monster that is fit for both the climbers and the sprinters, as the top cyclists in the world try to gain seconds on their opponents. Ranging from the mountains of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to the plains of Annonay Davezieux, this stage will be a good measure for the most balanced racers in the field.
The stage stretches 220 km, the longest route of all the stages this year. In fact, only one stage all of last year was longer, stage 6 between Dinan and Lisieux. However, that route never reached an altitude higher than 335 meters, as its long plain proved crucial for many sprinters.
Stage 12 of this year's Tour immediately hops up into the mountains. The riders must climb two peaks, the first reach 1,188 meters, and the second elevating to 1,134 meters. From that point, 79 km into the stage, the route will descend into a flat plain.
If the fighters want to make headway they will need to do it fast, as the sprinters will be sure to take advantage of the second half drag race.
A stage will finish in Annonay Davezieux for the first time in race history. Surely, the 17,500 inhabitants will be more than thrilled to see the brightly colored riders stop in for the donning of the jackets.
