Tour de France 2012, Stage 2: TV Coverage, Online Streaming Information, Route And More

Stage 2 of the 2012 Tour de France goes from Visé to Tournai, a long (207.5km) stage that has an excellent chance at seeing a bunch sprint for the finish. The long, flat stage is likely to see a breakaway spend plenty of time off the front, but they'll almost certainly be reeled in so that teams can position their sprinters for the stage win.

As always, Mark Cavendish (Sky) is the man to beat in a sprint. Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale), who won Stage 1 in a sprint with overall leader Fabian Cancellara (Radioshack-Nissan), is looking like he may be the man to beat Cav. Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp), Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol) and others will all be doing their part to best Cavendish as well.

Santa Rosa based Team BMC has the same job they had in Stage 1: Keep defending champion Cadel Evans safe, out of crashes, and make sure no GC contenders make any moves to slip up the standings.
