Stage Date: Sunday, July 7, 2019
Description: The Yellow Jersey will change shoulders if the winner of the previous stage isn’t surrounded by specialists of the collective effort. The final straight will offer the teams a fine view over the Atomium in the backdrop. Those that will have managed to stay as united as the atoms of the structure built for the 1958 Universal Exhibition should perfrom well. Last summer in Cholet, like in Plumelec in 2015, victory had been decided for just a few seconds.
Distance: 28
Departs: Bruxelles Palais Royal, France
Arrives: Brussel Atomium, France
Stage Type: Team Time Trial
Classification: Flat

The second day in Brussels featured the Team Time Trial. Ineos were the first team out, posting the fastest time of the day right until the end when Team Jumbo Visma carrying the morale boosting Yellow Jersey produced a stunning result beating Ineos by 20 seconds. So it's two from two stages for the Dutch team who have had a dream start to this year's tour.
