Bet Live: Tour de France Stage 12 TodayPublished July 11, 2013 by OCR Editor
Stage 11 is 218 km flat stage from Fougeres to Tours from 11am UK time today.
British cyclist Mark Cavendish will be hoping today turns out better than yesterday. Cavendish was sprayed with urine during yesterday's time trial, an incident that left him "disappointed" rather than angry according to his Omega Pharma-Quick Step team manager. His spirits should be lifted when he enters today's flat stage as the favorite.
Before the beginning of the historic 100 th Tour de France, Cavendish spoke confidently of his chances in the seven sprint stages. So far he has won just one of six, less than his usual output, so he will be looking to make amends today.
Compatriot and Team Sky star Chris Froome remains the clear Tour de France leader. He has gone from strength to strength since capturing the yellow jersey in Stage 8, and now leads the chasing pack by a long way, with a 3:25 minute gap ahead of nearest rival Alejandro Valverde (Spain, Movistar Team).
