    Start and finish times generally in the Tour de France

    Does anyone know where to find start times and approximate finish times for individual stages at the TOF?

    They always finish between 5pm and 5.30pm french time (in relation to the french TV coverage schedule).

    Start time depends on the stage but usually kick around 12am-12.30am, french time again.

    French time is Central European Time (CET) - easy enough to find your own time based on your location (12am french time is -5h for NYC so 7am).
    You find out your time

    It's possible that start times and estimated finish times are not available yet. Some sites to check on are 2018 Tour de France Live Video, Route, Photos, Results, Previews, TV, Startlist, L'Equipe, and letour.com While start times are accurate,
    finish time predictions are usually based on 3 different average km/hr scenarios.

    I believe you meant 12pm-1230pm. 12am is the middle of the night.

    Yes, traditionally the stages are held at the hottest part of the day.
