Stage 2 results.
The riders started in the town of Vienne, facing a mix of rolling and hilly terrain before the penultimate climb of the Côte Maillet, a category one climb to end on the HC climb of the Col de Porte (16.6km at 6.2 per cent) after 135km.
An eight man break went up the road early on with Bruno Amirail  #groupama, Kasper Asgreen  #deceuninck, Jasha Sütterlin  #sunweb, Ben O’Connor  #ntt, Jerome Cousin and Geoffrey Soupe  #total , Fabien Doubey  #cwg, and the  #kom jersey-holder, Michael Schär  #ccc.

With 44km to go where the riders hit the Maillet where Amirail and Schär, left the others behind. Schär took the maximum points on the climb, cementing his KoM lead.

The riders hit the final climb of the Col de Porte where the race came under the control of  #ineos. Amirail held on right up until 8.5km to go. More and more general classification names lost touch, until last man standing, Sivakov could not keep the pace, this is when Buchmann attacked.

Bernal then tried to get away but Kuss pulled him back immediately, a few more failed moves tried to go before Roglič put in a powerful seated attack with 700 metres to go. Thibaut Pinot also attacked, but was unable to bring back Roglič as the Slovenian took the win.
