Omega Pharma-Lotto last to go

Alberto Contador and Saxo Bank-SunGard will be the first to take off in the stage two team time trial. Nearly two and a half hours later, Omega Pharma-Lotto, with yellow jersey Philippe Gilbert, will be the last team to leave the starting blocks in Les Essarts.

The teams will start in reverse order of the team rankings from the first stage, which the Belgian team won. The teams will go off at seven minute intervals.

Major time differences are not expected, as the course is completely flat and only 23 kilometers. There are intermediate time checks at 9km and 16.5km. An average time of 25 minutes is expected.
