After a hectic first week at the Tour de France that saw Peter Sagan disqualified, Mark Cavendish sent home through injury and Chris Froome take yellow we look forward to the second week.

With more flat finishes to come in the shape of stage 10, 11 and a flat finish on 12 we will see the remaining fast men battle it out once more.

However, with Marcel Kittel already taking three stages he’ll be hoping to continue his purple patch.

With the race entering the Pyrénées, Froome and his fellow rivals will all be eyeing up some valuable time gains and with some lengthy ascent we could even see the odd attack from Nairo Quintana.

The stand out stage will be stage 12 with a summit finish to Peyragudes, taking 13 seconds into his rivals at the time. This will come after two flat stages meaning that a lot of the climbers will be raring to go. Expect fireworks.

The second week will once again provide more opportunities for breakaways to go and with some of the smaller teams trying their luck in the first week, we could possibly see the first breakaway win.

Let us know what you thought of the first week and how you think the second week of the Tour will play out. You can also check out the full route here.
