York - Sheffield 201 km

This is the Yorkshire stage that everyone has been looking forward to with dread-filled excitement. An Ardenne classic on day 2 of the Tour in some fantastic landscapes. It has all the makings of a memorable stage.

Boisterous Blubberhouse of the Day: Jan Bakelants

Simon Gerrans was perhaps the outright favorite for this before the crash that sent Cavendish out of the TdF with a separated shoulder but he sounds too banged up to be a factor sadly. Instead we might see OPQS bounce back with a win from in-form Bakelants.  He'll have to overcome the big names Sagan and Valverde to do it but we could well see a surprise here. Bakelants it is.
