Mat Hayman's view
This looks like another stage for the sprinters. It's the longest stage of the race and we'll see another break go before the sprinters' teams take over. The GC will have taken shape by now and the sprinters who lost out on stage 1 will be looking for revenge. There are a couple of sprints early on during the stage, and the GC teams might take those on as they battle for bonus seconds, but from there the stage should be fairly predictable.
