Stage 12 - Thursday, July 16: Tonnerre - Vittel, 200km

Another cross-country, transitional stage for the sprinters or likely breakaways. Riders get underway on their 200km-journey to thermal station Vittel in Tonnerre, which means 'thunder' in English. Will it inspire Norwegian fast man Thor ('the thunder god') Hushovd to take the honours in Vittel, where the mineral water and major sponsor of the Tour comes from? A breakaway might also succeed if the sprinters' teams miscalculate their chase.
