Coming up tomorrow: stage 3, from Moss to Sarpsborg, 175 km.

This is another opportunity for the sprinters, althoug it has previously been won from a late attack as well. 
The sprint is a slight uphill drag and it favors strong sprinters, need I spell G r o e n e w e g e n anymore....?
The #jumbo leadout will not be significantly impacted today by Boom being out of the race. He's just a bleakaway killah for them.
The challengers, #academy will also have a strong leadout with 2 good sprinters in support of the 3rd (probably Sondre Holst Enger supported by Jensen and van Winden).
Edvald Boasson Hagen is dependent on someone else's leadout, as #didata comes without a #jumbo calibre train, featuring lighter climbers for support instead, but age and treachery, and he just won a stage.  :)
