TdF'06: Stage 2 Open Thread

In case I don't get up before the chatter starts...

Apart from passing through the town of Yutz, today's stage is otherwise notable in that it offers enough climbs to make one wonder if we're going to see the caravan of sprinters' teams at the front after all. The Kanfen and Volmerage-les-Mines humps are only category 4, but come late enough in the game to possibly shake off a few big names. Personally I doubt the sprinters themselves will have too much trouble, but what seems a bit more likely is that if there's a break still away at that point, the peloton may have trouble getting organized for the final chase.

Anyway, have at it, and don't feel like you should wait for me...
