The Tour de France rolled out for it’s second stage from Düsseldorf in much of the same conditions as the time trial took place in the day before.

Rain, rain and more rain greeted the riders, but how would the stage unfold?

With such a flat parcours, it was more than likely to open up an opportunity for the likes of Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step), Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) and the other sprinters to try and take victory.

But there’s always a breakaway to try and ruin the party, especially with the first two KOM points on offer. along the 203.5km route to Liège in Belgium.

Catch-up with the best bits of the stage or read up on everything that happened on the second day of racing in our stage two report.

The 2017 Tour de France starts in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Saturday July 1 and finishes three weeks later in Paris on Sunday, July 23.
