Tour de France 2017 Route stage 2: Düsseldorf (Ger) - Liège (Bel)
Sunday, 2 July 2017 - Stage 2 in the Tour de France leaves from Düsseldorf to head to Liège in Belgium. In 2012 the Grand Depart was in the Walloon town.
In 2012, the Tour de France started with a prologue in Liège. Fabian Cancellara powered to the win, besting Bradley Wiggins by 6 seconds. In the 2nd stage of this year’s edition the most likely outcome in Liège is a bunch sprint.
Albeit the finish line is on Belgian soil, the major part of stage 2 is played out in Germany. Following the start in Düsseldorf the peloton sets out on a local round taking in the Grafenberg, a 4th category hill. After a last goodbye in Düsseldorf the riders head for Mönchengladbach – scene of the intermediate sprint – to cross the border to Belgium shortly after Aachen.
The finish is on the wide Boulevard de la Sauvenière in Liège.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
