Stage 2, August 20: Nîmes – Gruissan/Grand Narbonne/Aude, 203.4 km

Start: 12:43
Finish: 17:26-17:55

Stage 2 is clearly a day for the sprinters go for glory, and for the GC men to avoid mishaps and stay out of the final fray.

In preparing the sprint, the pack will have to negotiate a possibly dodgy roundabout at just before 2 km to go.

The final kilometer is not a straight shot to the finish, but looks free of obvious hazards. The riders will skirt another roundabout at around 300 meters before the finish, but afterwards will encounter only one gentle curve before covering the the last few straight meters on the Boulevard de Pech Maynard.

Features:

Km 97.6: Feed zone
Km 174.7 (28.7 km to go): Meta volante at Saint-Marcel-sur-Aude
