The 23km team time trial of stage two is due to commence at 2.30pm. The first squad to start is Saxo Bank-SunGard which is last in the team rankings after stage one because Alberto Contador was caught in a crash with nine kilometers to go... and his team-mates all waited for their leader to try and help him limit his losses. Teams will start today's stage at seven-minute intervals with Euskaltel the second squad (at 2.37pm) followed by Vacansoleil (at 2.44pm). The leading team after stage one is Omega Pharma-Lotto. The start time for Philippe Gilbert's posse will be 4.57pm.
