2014 Route du Sud - la Dépêche du Midi (2.1), France

38th edition: June 20 - June 22, 2014

Stage 2 Results

Back to 2014 Route du Sud |

Saturday, June 21: Stage 2, Bagneres de Bigorre - Val Louron, 178.6 km

Stage 2 profile |

The Race: Today's stage had a hilly profile with three famous climbs, the Col du Tourmalet, Col d'Aspin and the final ascent to Val Louron. The peloton was going to break up with those passes in the way, and break up it did.

Tinkoff-Saxo played its cards perfectly, having Eduard Beltran cook the pack before Nicolas Roche left the surviving riders behind. After the race Roche said that if he failed, an in-form Michael Rogers (who took second today) could counter-attack.

Roche's attack was successful, successul enough to give him the overall lead with one stage to go. Alejandro Valverde is sitting in second place, 45 seconds behind.
