Australian road champion Ruth Corset (Australia) powered to victory in stage two, a 3.5km time trial and the first of two stages on the day. Corset covered the route in 5:32 and topped runner-up Christel Ferrier Bruneau (France) by eight seconds. Lizzie Armitstead (Cervelo TestTeam) rounded out the top three, also finishing eight seconds off the pace of Corset.

Vicki Whitelaw (Lotto Ladies Team) finished fourth, 12 seconds back, and took over the race lead from stage one winner Sharon Laws (Cervelo TestTeam). Laws stopped the clock in fifth place, one second down on Whitelaw, and now trails Whitelaw by the same margin on general classification.

Ruth Corset moves into third place overall, 1:29 down on Whitelaw.

The peloton faces a 90km stage in the afternoon from Vals les Bains to Le Teil.
