Tour de France: “Revenge of yesterday”, everything you need to know about the second stage

Tour de France: "Revenge of yesterday", everything you need to know about the second stage

This Sunday, for the second leg, Peloton goes to the heart of Brittany. Racers must start at 1:10 pm and reach 182 km after racing at 5:42 pm.

Thierry Gouveno, Technical Director of the event “For me it was revenge the day before because we have two similar uphill finishes, short and fast. At Mar-de-Bretagen, this is your chance to see who is in good shape. Examining the previous classifications of the stages that came here, we found that those behind the main favorites did not recover it later. The one who takes 10 or 15 seconds will already be the first warning sign of his remaining time. This means that you are not completely 100%, which means you will miss something. So we know things: who is really lustful or who is not? Nothing will be final, but he who finishes in 15 seconds is already lucky. It can be difficult to stop the machine in the right direction. In any case, this is the perfect place for a clash between general players and punchers. “

Has been waiting for the Peros-Gyrek tour for 26 years. The majestic pink granite beach city has never had a stage finish, and the Grande Bouquet has only stopped once in 118 years: to Vitre in 1995. Laurent Jalabert was on the yellow of a tour and soon won the fifth and final Miguel Indurain. The imitator Theory Le Luron rests in the city cemetery.

Mar-de-Bretagne, aptly named. The municipality of Cസ്te d’Armore in the Guingamp district merged with the municipality of Mar-de-Bretagne in early 2017 to form the municipality of Guerlain, which merged with St. Guan. There are less than 2,500 residents. The tour has been on this route since 1930, but this is the fourth time since 2011 that Mar-de-Bretagne has hosted a venue for the tour. Ten years ago, Australian Cadel Evans won before Alexis Willermos in 2015 and Irish Daniel Martin in 2018. Breton was nicknamed the Alp de Hughes and had to climb the shores of More-de-Bretagen twice.

The prophecy of that day. Should we pick it up and start over? The second step should look like the first. Will Julian Alfilipp Landerino do it again? I know the yellow jersey can see this. Matthew van der Poyle, who was trapped on the shores of Wolf Pit on Saturday, has revenge. This is a step for him.
