TOUR DE FRANCE STAGE 2 BETTING PREVIEWSTeams will start in five-minute intervals in reverse order of the Team Classification following STAGE 2, with the yellow jersey wearer’s squad - the Jumbo–Visma - going last. Each team’s time will be taken when its fourth rider crosses the line. The first four riders are all awarded the same time, so there is no advantage in zooming away on your own and teamwork is vital. The last four to cross the line are given the times they clock individually.
The 27 kilometers follows a loop to the south-east of Brussels before turning north, crossing over the early kilometres of the route via fly over and then heading direct towards the Parc de Laeken for the finishing the shadowing of the stunning Atomium structure.
Team Ineos will look to establish themselves as the team to beat with defending champ Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal leading a field of established rouleurs and time trialists such as Gianni Moscon.
Jumbo–Visma, whose Mike Teunissen surprisingly wears the yellow jersey, has several powerful time trialists, including Wout Van Aert and four-time world champion Tony Martin. They won the UAE Tour TTT earlier this season.
Mitchelton-Scott bested all the other teams at the Tirreno-Adriatico Team Time-Trial and can't be ruled out while EF Education First bring a pretty decent team to the table too and have improved dramatically individually in TTs this year.
Sunweb has a time-trial specialist such as Chad Haga, who won the individual time-trial which closed the Giro d’Italia in May while Deceuninck-QuickStep are arguably stronger than ever. They are World Champions in the discipline and have a good number of that squad, including Elia Viviani, Michael Morkov, Yves Lampaert, Kasper Asgreen and Julian Alaphilippe in their line-up.
Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) hopes to be fit following his crash on the opening stage, so we don't expect the Kazakh team to be a real contender.
Movistar, Groupama-FDJ, Bahrain-Merida and AG2R La Mondiale areteams filled with more climbers than time trialists. Hence, GC riders like Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ), Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Romain Bardet (AG2R) will be desperate to limit any damage on the clock.
Bora-Hansgrohe without Bodnar will hardly be in the mix while Team Katusha includes the likes of Dowsett, Goncalves, Haller, and Politt, so they are pushing real power.
