2012 Tour de France stage towns leaked

As accidentally published by ASO for a few minutes on the 10th of October. Lots of time trial, lots of flat sections. Could 2012 be the year Mark Cavendish wins the Tour? It looks like a good one for Bradley Wiggins too and certainly seems to be a route ideally suited to both Quick-Step and Sky in their current line-ups.

The details are as of yet unconfirmed and will remain so until the official announcement on the 18th - however, in the meantime, it seems a safe bet that Andy Schleck isn't going to be too pleased. With a notable lack of mountains in comparison to recent years, it looks as though the Luxembourg rider will be out of luck once again.
