Stage 4, July 4, Abbeville to Rouen: 214.5km

Although mainly flat, there is potential for drama on Stage 4. After leaving Abbeville, the peloton follows the Normandy coastline from Le Treport, from where a first volley of small climbs appear. After turning inland at Fecamp for Rouen, the peloton tackles the only intermediate sprint, then a category-four climb, before riding toward the town made famous, at least in cycling terms, by favorite son Jacques Anquetil.
