Stage 2 Tour Results

Tour de FranceBritish sprinter Mark Cavendish has won the second stage of the tour in 104° temperatures and now wears the green jersey, but the overall leaders remain the same: Fabian Cancellara [CH], Alberto Contador [E], Bradley Wiggens [GB]. Lance Armstrong is at 10th place and stayed with the pack today.

The fans needed helmets to protect them from the flying water bottles.

Update: I noticed someone wondering why the finish times at the end of a stage may show a half dozen people with the same time. This is because they only track the time to the second, and that many people may cross the line in a second. When the main group comes through you could have more than a dozen people crossing together.
