The Tour de France got underway on Friday with a time trial and returns with the first run of the full peloton. Stage 2 will run from Roskilde to Nyborg in Denmark as the Tour continues its first-ever three-stage run through the Scandinavian country. The stage gets started at 6 a.m. ET and will air on USA Network. If you don’t feel like getting up that early, you can re-watch it at 1 p.m. on NBC.

Yves Lampaert heads into the second stage wearing the yellow jersey. He won Friday’s time trial with a time of 15 minutes, 17 seconds. Wout van Aert finished five seconds back in second place and pre-race overall favorite Tadej Pogačar finished seven seconds back in third place.

Stage 2 runs 202.2 kilometers and is a fairly flat course. The peloton will open in Roskilde at 53 meters in height and finish at Nyborg at 2 meters. The course runs down quickly to near sea level, and then has a brief climb at Côte d’Asnæs Indelukke that takes the cyclists back up to 62 meters. They go back down near sea level for the final 105 kilometers of the race.

Fabio Jakobsen heads into Saturday as the favorite to win Stage 2. He has +190 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook, and is followed by Dylan Groenewegen (+500), Jasper Philipsen (+650), and then van Aert, Caleb Ewan, and Mads Pedersen (all at +750).
