Riders held an improvised protest during the opening kilometres of stage 2 of the Tour of Luxembourg on Wednesday, voicing their concerns about vehicles on the race route.  

After Tuesday's opening stage, highly respect Italian rider Jacopo Guarnieri (Groupama-FDJ) highlighted the dangers the riders faced on social media, revealing there were parked cars on both sides of the road in the final kilometres of the stage and even a bus stopped in the road on a fast descent with 4.5km to go.
