2012 tour de France route and Normandy visit

I see that the tour de France will go from Abbeville to Rouen next July 4th. I would love to see a stage of the tour, it would be a dream. Can we tie in seeing a stage in one of theses towns with a trip to tour the d day beaches? I have looked at the maps but still confused about the distances involved. Thanks,

The distance between Abbeville and Rouen is 69 miles. The D-day beaches are west of Rouen. For a D-day trip, it is usually best to start from Bayeux. The distance between Bayeux and Rouen is 96 miles.
