Versus Tour De France 2011: A Preview of Stage 7
Versus Tour de France 2011 Previews Stage 7
The seventh stage of the Tour de France is set to begin in Le Mans and continue to Chateauroux and spans a total of just over 135 miles.
Chateauroux is approximately two hours south of Paris and provides stunning views of the countryside.
The route is another stunning one that will favor the sprinters at the finish line. The racers will conclude the stage crossing over the Indre River where they will finish along the avenue de La Chatre.
Nearly 119 miles of the race will be a sprint, so don't expect any of the serious climbers to make much of an impact in the race.
Friday's stage should be an exciting one and it will air live on VERSUS at 8:00 AM Eastern Time.
