Here are the best pictures from stage two of the Tour de France 2019

Some choice snaps from the team time trial

Team time trials don't necessarily provide the most scintillating racing across the 21 stages of the Tour de France, but what they often lack in excitement they make up for in aesthetics.

The symmetry of the discipline and the slickness of the tech combines with the photographers being able to position themselves along the route and snap each time that comes by makes for some cracking shots.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
