Ineos already highlights

Second day of Tour and second day in which the Jumbo is the protagonist


Second day of Tour and second day in which the Jumbo is protagonist. In a time trial too short to make big differences, the twenty seconds ahead of the Ineos were a surprise. The British and their leaders, Egan Bernal and Geraint Thomas, were the most benefited of all the favorites. Part of the blame was Jonathan Castroviejo, who proved once again that he is one of the best in the world in this specialty, and that Movistar missed to minimize the loss of time, something greater than expected. Some like Romain Bardet, Nairo Quintana or Mikel Landa perhaps gave way more than expected, while others like Thibaut Pinot or Enric Mas can be very satisfied.

The interest in today's stage will be in the last 50 km. There will be three ports with the last meters up, so some sprinter will be discarded for victory and will miss the work of their teams. Peter Sagan and Julian Alaphilippe are the favorites, without discarding Teunissen, that can be found with greater freedom when wearing yellow. It is very probable that, until on Thursday with La Planche des Belles Filles, when the mountain arrives, there will be no change of leader, so the best will have to worry more about avoiding falls and other inconveniences.
