Stage 2 Preview

A chance for the sprinters

Stage two offers the first real chance for sprinters in the Dauphine. A rolling, but mostly flat stage will give also give opportunities for break although staying away on the relatively short 179km parcours may prove difficult. The finish will also provide a little extra spice, with a 40m rise in the final 500m. Someone like a Paolo Bettini will be looking for the win.
