    In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert: Sylvain Chavanel again in Boulogne-sur-Mer?In this 4th edition of In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert, we analyse together that Stéphane was right again with his prediction for the day for the stage between Visé and Tournai with Mark Cavendish (Team Sky) as the winner. For the 3rd stage between Orchies and Boulogne-sur-Mer the former rider of the AG2R team takes a bit more risk ...

    It all seemed to be planned like that: Mark Cavendish (Team Sky), who seemed to have missed the right sprinters train (since he doesn't have his dedicated sprinters train with Sky he needed to get on the wheel of someone else), won the second stage of the Tour de France 2012 between Visé and Tournai.

    Behind the British world champion we found other sprinters, such as André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) and Matthew Goss (Orica-GreenEDGE) on second and third place.

    Concerning the third stage, Orchies > Boulogne-sur-Mer over 197 kilometers and with the Monts du Boulonnais as the dessert of the stage (2 mountains of the 3rd category and 4 of the 4th category, including the finish uphill in Boulogne-sur-Mer - see here the race route of the 3rd stage of the Tour de France 2012), Stéphane Goubert mentions among the potential winners names like Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale), Fabian Cancellara (Radioshack-Nissan) and Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky) but he finally choses Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) who could thus re-do his victoyr of the French championships which took place at the same place in 2011!

    Finally we shortly discuss the new dress codes in the peloton (helmets and team kits).

  1. Très bon pronostic! A mon avis,Chavanel attaquera au début de la cote finale ou avant car c'est la seule solution pour prendre le jaune (Cancellara ne sera pas laché). J'en fais le favori pour l'étape et le jaune à moins que Sagan , Gilbert ou Bohasen Hagen déjouent mon prono.
