Tour de France 2012, Stage 2: TV Coverage, Route And More

Stage 2 of the 2012 Tour de France, which gets underway on Monday, takes the riders from Visé to Tournai and covers 207.5 kilometers. This is a flat stage that is well-suited for the best sprinters in the field, as Jean-Francois Pescheaux notes:

"This pancake flat stage is tailored to pure sprinters. If Cavendish has missed out on a win the day before, this is the perfect place to make amends. This will be the third day straight that the Tour de France stays in Belgium. The stage will start from Visé, which is hosting the Tour for the first time. The bunch will visit the citadel of Namur halfway through the stage (km 82). We are sticking to tradition."
