In this 3rd edition of In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert the former rider of the AG2R team comes back on the first stage between Liège and Seraing and than analyses today's stage, between Visé and Tournai.

Concerning the 198 kilometer long stage between Liège and Seraing with a slightly uphill finish, we observe together that Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) kept his promises, there where Fabian Cancellara (Radioshack-Nissan) shows a good form and manages to keep the yellow jersey quite easily. The local rider, Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team) didn't manage to step up the highest step of the stage's podium and thus shows he's no longer able to reproduce the magical formula which he seemed to have last season.

For today's stage, 207.5 kilometers between Visé and Tournai (click here for all details about the race route of the 2nd stage of the Tour de France 2012), Stéphane observes a much flatter profile and thus thinks this stage is pretty much made for a more classical sprinter. Without any hesitation the former rider from Montpellier thus thinks about Mark Cavendish (Team Sky).
