On a dramatic day that saw all the pre-race GC favorites charging hard at the front, Italian star Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) jumped away from a dwindled bunch to capture the stage 2 win and take possession of the yellow jersey. At the finish, the winner of last year’s Giro d’Italia managed to put 2 seconds into his key rivals in a battle that is just heating up. BMC’s Belgian strongman Greg Van Avermaet trailed across the line in second, with rising Polish star Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) third. Day 1 stage winner Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) was never a factor in the ever-hilly 201km stage from York to Sheffield, finishing almost 20 minutes behind in 166th.
