Stage 2:  Eidsvoll – Brummundal, 194 km
After #didata Edvald Boasson Hagen's schematically delivered his own birthday present today, the race continues on a slightly constitutional theme – starting in Eidsvoll, where a national assembly put words on paper in 1814, going north along the west side of the Mjøsa lake, crossing the Toten heights, before heading through the town of Gjøvik on the way to the Mjøsa bridge, crossing the lake from the west shore to the east shore, rounding the Nes peninsula before heading into the Brummundal. In Brummundal there will be two rounds in a local loop and a flat finish. 

This one will probably end in a bunch sprint! I nominate Kristoffer Halvorsen to give everyone a hard time, but he'll have to get in ahead of #fortuneo Daniel McClay and #lotto Dylan Groenewegen. Not sure if he can! #veloconcept Alexander Kamp could also show up, and #didata Edvald Boasson Hagen can make up for some lack of top speed with experience.

PS: the preview of the giro stage 12 is delayed cause I am still at 60 km out in today's stage....trying to get it done with no spoilers  :S
