Stage 20 of the 2012 Tour de France is the traditional final stage, a 120km run from Rambouillet to Paris that concludes with eight high speed laps around Champs-Élysées and a sprint finish. Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins has a secure hold on the Yellow Jersey, the General Classification is extremely unlikely to see a change in Sunday's stage.
With the GC title decided, Sunday's stage is for the sprinters. Mark Cavendish (Sky) holds the record for Champs-Élysées victories, having won the last three years running. Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) is likely to give him some serious competition this year. Sagan will win the Green Jersey in the points competition and a win in the final sprint would be a fine cap on his first Tour de France.
Television coverage of the event begins at 5 a.m. on the NBC Sports Network, with a recap of the entire Tour on NBC at 10 a.m. Streaming coverage is provided via Tour de France Live, subscription required.
