Bill & Carol McGann's book The Story of the Tour de France, 2021: The Little Cannibal Dominates is available in both Kindle eBook & audiobook versions. To get your copy, just click on the Amazon link on the right.

Weather at the race city of Budapest at 1:50 PM, local time: 22C (73F), mostly cloudy, with the wind from the east at 8 km/hr (5 mph). There us just a 1% chance of rain.

Info about the route: A short ITT on wide and well-paved urban roads, from Pest to Buda. Starting from the Heroes’ Square, the route heads towards the Danube, which separates the two souls of the city. Taking in several bends, the stage course reaches the riverside, passes the neo-Gothic Parliament and crosses the Danube to roll along the opposite bank.  The route takes two U-turns, the first one upward and the second one downward, when approaching and when leaving the river bank on the Parliament’s side. Moving away from the river, the route takes in the closing climb.

Final kilometers
The final 1500m run is entirely uphill. Past the intermediate split, the route takes the climb leading to the castle, hitting the maximum gradient (14%) on flagstone. The route then continues at around 4%, taking in a few hairpins, all the way to the finish square in Buda (on tarmac).

The race: First rider off was Harm Vanhoucke (Lotto Soudal) at 2:00. Last rider was race leader Mathieu Van der Poel at 4:55.

Here's the report from stage winner Simon Yates' Team BikeExchange-Jayco:

British climber Simon Yates has put down a marker at the Giro d’Italia with a thrilling victory in the stage two time trial in Budapest.

The 29-year-old powered around the 9.2km course in the Hungarian capital in a time of 11’50” to take the stage win by three seconds, with teammate Matteo Sobrero taking fourth place and the white jersey for his efforts.

It was a strong overall team performance by Team BikeExchange-Jayco, placing six riders in the top-40, with American time trial champion Lawson Craddock and Lucas Hamilton both in the mix early on, after two impressive rides against the clock.

Italian time trial champion Sobrero then took the top spot in his home Grand Tour with a time of 12’03” to dethrone long-time leader Lenard Kamna at the head of the standings. Sobrero’s provisional fastest time didn’t last long though, as Tom Dumoulin bettered the 24-year-old's effort with a time of 11’55”.

However, before the Dutchman could take his place in the hotseat, Yates raced across the line in a blistering time of 11’50” to reclaim the fastest time for Team BikeExchange-Jayco. The British rider set the quickest intermediate split on the flat section of the course, before putting more time into his rivals on the climb to the finish line.

It was then a case of waiting for the remaining riders to see how the final standings would shake out, but nobody could topple Yates as he claimed his fifth Giro d’Italia stage win of his career, to demonstrate his top form in his major goal of the season.

Simon Yates - 1st place:
“I just tried to go as fast as possible, I have to thank our partners, Giant and Cadex, we put a lot of work into our equipment this year, and of course it’s paying off.

"I was never confident, Van der Poel was close as well, but of course you always have that belief that you can win, and eventually I managed to hang on.

"Today was a 12-minute effort, we still have some much more demanding stages in front of us. But of course, we will celebrate today, it’s one of only two time trials I have ever won and my first ever in a Grand Tour, so we’ll enjoy today, but I think we need to look at the bigger picture.”

Matt White (Head Sport Director):
“Winning in the Giro d’Italia is always a lovely day, and the time trial Simon produced today was a very, very impressive one. We had a feeling he would be in the mix, but for him to win his first TT in a Grand Tour, it was a very special effort from him.

"It was also one of the best time trials Sobrero has ever ridden as well and I think across the board the team performed very well today, and it’s a nice reward for Matteo to be in the best young rider jersey.”
