The race: 174 riders began the stage at 12:21 PM. This is the 2023 Tour's longest stage. Though he has a fractured elbow and is in considerable pain, Torsten Traen (Uno-X) began the stage.

The attacks went off about at the start and by kilometer seven the trio of Rémi Cavagna (Soudal Quick-Step), Edvald Boasson Hagen (TotalEnergies) and Neilson Powless (EF Education-EasyPost) had gone clear. Twenty kilometers into the stage the trio had a lead of 2 minutes 15 seconds. Ten kilometers later the gap was 4 minutes.

With 145 kilometers to go the trio had a gap of 4 minutes 38 seconds.

About two in the afternoon, just before the day's first climb, the Col d'Udana, rain began to fall on the riders. At the top of the Col the lead trio was 3 minutes 55 seconds ahead of the pack.

Here's the break halfway into the stage. ASO photo

With 83 kilometers to go Mark Cavendish was dropped on a uncategorized climb. Not long after more sprinters were left behind: Jakobsen, Groenewegen, Kristoff and others. And up front Rémi Cavagna, having leg problems, could not stay with Boasson Hagen and Powless and had to let them go.

Rémi Cavagna can't stay with his fellow breakaways. That has to hurt.

With about 55 kilometers to go the dropped sprinters have rejoined the peloton. Up front Powless and Boasson Hagen have a lead of 2 minutes 55 seconds. Rémi Cavagna was caught by the peloton.

On the penultimate ascent, the Côte de Gurutze, Neilson Powless dropped Boasson Hagen. Back in the peloton, two contenders for final victory, Jonas Vingegaard and Ben O'Connrer crashed. With assistance from teammates, the pair were soon back on their bikes and back in the peloton.

At the bottom of the day's final and somewhat formidable ascent, the Jaizkibel, Powless was alone, off the front, with a lead of 1 minute 40 seconds.

At the back of the pack, Mathieu van der Poel was dropped.

Time to get up and over the day's final ascent, the Jaizkibel.

And with 19.3 kilometers to go and still on the Jaizkibel, Powless is caught. The front group is down to about thirty riders with Julian Alaphilippe, Thibaut Pinot and other fine riders dropped.

The order of the riders as they went over the Jaizkibel had no surprises:

1. Tadej Pogacar, 8 bonus seconds
2. Jonas Vingegaard, 5 bonus seconds
3. Simon Yates, 2 bonus seconds
4. Giulio Ciccone

Descending the Jaizkibel Pogacar and Vingegaard were together with a 10-second lead, but were caught with 12 kilometers to go. The Pello Bilbao took off. Wout van Aert tried to catch Bilbao, but couldn't.

With 4.5 kilomters to go Bilbao is 5 seconds ahead of his chasers. That couldn't last and he was caught. The lead group at this point had 25 riders.

With just 2 kilometers to go Danish champion Mattias Skjelmose attacked. Then Victor Lafay gave chase.

That worked for Lafay. He won the stage, giving his Cofidis team its first TDF stage win since Sylvain Chavanel won a stage in 2008.

Here's the race organizer's stage two report:

Victor Lafay escaped from the group of the favourites one kilometre before the end to deliver the stage victory the Cofidis team waited for fifteen years – since Sylvain Chavanel outclassed Jérémy Roy in Montluçon in 2008. Lafay maintained the tradition of French stage wins in San Sebastian after Louis Caput in 1949 and Dominique Arnould in 1992. Third on the line, Tadej Pogacar gained four seconds of time bonus while Adam Yates retained the yellow jersey.

POWLESS, BOASSON HAGEN AND CAVAGNA IN THE LEAD
174 riders started stage 2 in Vitoria-Gasteiz at 12.32. One non-starter: Richard Carapaz (EF Education-EasyPost). Three riders managed to go clear at km 8, firstly Edvald Boasson Hagen (TotalEnergies) and Neilson Powless (EF Education-EasyPost), joined secondly by Rémi Cavagna (Soudal-Quick Step). The maximum time gap of 4’55’’ was recorded at km 68 as Vegard Stake Laengen was pulling the bunch for UAE Team Emirates until his team-mate Mikkel Bjerg took over.

The peloton was 2’30’’ adrift and it was raining when Mark Cavendish got dropped in a non-categorized climb with 83km to go. Cavagna could no longer hold the pace in the ascent to Alkiza where Powless mathematically secured his polka dot jersey at km 140.9. All the riders dropped got back to the pack with 57km to go as they followed Cavendish’s servant Gianni Moscon.

POGACAR FIRST AT JAIZKIBEL
With 40km to go, the deficit of the peloton was down to two minutes. Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) and Ben O’Connor (AG2R-Citroën) crashed 37km before the end but got back to the pack pretty quickly. With 36km to go, Powless distanced Boasson Hagen and continued solo en route to the Jaizkibel, the main difficulty of the main located 16.5km away from the finishing line.

The American had 1’30’’ lead at the bottom of 8-km long climb. He was reeled in 2.5km before the summit and it was all together again with 19.5km remaining. Pogacar won the bonus point atop the Jaizkibel before Vingegaard while Simon Yates crested in third position. Pogacar and Vingegaard went away in the downhill but were brought back by the reduced yellow jersey group with 12km to go.

LAFAY SOLOES AT THE FLAMME ROUGE
Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious) rode away solo at the end of the downhill. He was reeled in with 5.5km to go by 25 riders. Jumbo-Visma led the group until Victor Lafay (Cofidis) attacked with 1km to go. The Frenchman fended off the riders sprinting behind him to beat Wout van Aert and claim his first Tour de France stage win, two years after he imposed himself in a stage of the Giro d’Italia as well.
