2014 Tour de France: Stage 2 Preview – York to Sheffield

York to Sheffield
Sunday, July 6th / 201 km / TDF Header Hill Stage

A day after the sprinters are likely rule, stage 2 from York to Sheffield looks to be a more open affair. The ever-rolling route (think Liège-Bastogne-Liège) has several uncategorized climbs, including the testing Jenkin Road ascent that’s less than 5 kilometers from the finish. This could be the perfect launching pad for someone like Orica-GreenEdge’s Simon Gerrans or an on-form Peter Sagan.

Our pick: Spanish GC hope Alejandro Valverde sneaks away and takes the yellow jersey away from Cav.
