Join us for live text coverage of Paris-Nice 2018 Stage 2 from Orsonville to Vierzon. The week-long stage race is the first test for Grand Tour general classification riders and we’re likely to see the big names testing themselves towards the finale, not today however on this predominantly flat stage. It will be definetively one for the sprinters today. Frenchman Arnaud Démare has just achieved the first seasonal success and leads the overall classification of the Course to the Sun. Alexander Kristoff (UAE-Team Emirates), Sam Bennett (BORA – hansgrohe), John Degenkolb (Trek – Segafredo), Phil Bauhaus (Team Sunweb), Dylan Groenewegen (Lotto-NL-Jumbo), Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal), Magnus Cort Nielsen (Astana), Elia Viviani (Quickstep) and Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) will presumably be the competitors for stage 2.
