category 3 and one category 2 raising to over 1000 metres high. Jan Bakelants surprised us all by winning the stage one second of every, so he wears the yellow jersey for the next stage.

There were many break-aways during the race, the first one was within the first kilometre by Perez Moreno (EUS), Boom (BEL), Veilleux (EUC) and Kadri (ALM). The peloton kept a steady pace so the sprinters like Cavendish, Kristoff, Van Poppel and yesterday’s winner Marcel Kitel were still in the race. After 68 kilometres Moreno accelerated to try and get the two points for The King Of The Mountain jersey but Boom saw exactly what he was doing and managed to catch up shortly afterwards and took over eventually to take the first two points on offer for the second stage. Shortly afterwards Veilleux and Kadri broke-away from Perez Moreno and Boom and Thomas Voecker (EUR) managed to break from the peloton and follow behind, but he was caught up not long afterwards along with Veilleux.

Vadri (AG2G) made a valiant effort to try and gain the points for king of the mountain, while the sprinters started dropping off from the peloton. Vadri didn’t have many difficulties staying ahead of the peloton for a period, but at one point stopped because of a problem with his chain but he sprinted off quickly to recuperate the time lost. At that point the only sprinter left in the peloton was favourite of this stage, Peter Sagan (CAN). The yellow jersey group started dropping off at a worrying speed, which was expected, but then Mark Cavendish (OPQ) couldn’t even keep up with the yellow jersey group, who also had the polka-dot jersey and white jersey wearer in it.

After 92 kilometres, Pierre Roland (EUC) attacked and broke from the peloton and Feillu (SOJ) followed shortly afterwards, Roland made up for the 20 second gap between Vadri and the peloton. Roland later on broke away from Vadri and Vadri found it difficult to catch him. Pierre Roland continued to take the first place points for the King Of The Mountain jersey and gets 5 points, Kadri got 3 points and Feillu got 2 points. The gap between the yellow jersey group and the peloton stretched to 6 minutes to make it look impossible for them to catch the leaders.

Gauthier (EUR) and Flecha (VCD) broke away 12 kilometres from the end, Flecha didn’t stay ahead for long and dropped back into the peloton. Gauthier was determined not to give in and win this stage but he found out that the peloton was accelerating too quickly and was too strong for him.

About 6 to 7 kilometres from the end, there was a break-away that consisted of Irizar (RSL), Fuglsang (AST), Izagirre (EUS), Mori (LMD), Flecha and Chavanel (OPQ) who started it of. The leaders looked like managing to win and stay ahead of the peloton but less than a kilometre from the end and the leaders got caught but quickly afterwards Jan Bakelandts (RSL) broke away and looked struggled by the last 300 metres but just about crossed the line a second in front of Sagan.
