New Zealand cyclist wins stage on Tour de France

Mark Cavendish- What time does the 2018 Tour de France start tomorrow what TV channel can I watch it on and what does the stage look like

The Solvakian's Bora Hansgrohe team finished in seventh spot, 50 seconds down on the stage winners, but he will wear the green jersey on stage four.

They stopped the clock on 38:55 but they were soon out of the "hotseat" as Sky - second off - came through five seconds quicker.

Movistar could only manage 10th place on the day, 50 seconds off Team Sky's pace, which means Froome is nearly back on level terms with Mikel Landa and Alejandro Valverde, while Nairo Quintana dropped even further back after his opening day woes.

Stage victor Slovakia's Peter Sagan, wearing the overall leader's yellow jersey, celebrates on the podium after the second stage of the Tour de France.

Dan Martin's UAE Team Emirates team, meanwhile, could only manage 15th place, one minute 39 seconds off the winning time, after key man Oliviero Troia suffered an early puncture.

Overall, Froome is in 18th place, 55 seconds off the pace and still 44 behind 2017 Giro d'Italia victor Dutchman Tom Dumoulin, who with Team Sunweb only lost seven seconds to the Briton on Monday.

Chris Froome will also be a relatively happy camper after Team Sky finished second on the stage, just four seconds behind the BMC juggernaut. "It's been a great little journey over the past couple of months to come to this team and become part of a really tight team time trial unit and to really add to that is something I will be proud of for a long time", he said.

The Briton crossed the line 51 seconds behind Tour debutant Gaviria, who won a bunch sprint after the 201km ride from Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile ahead of world champion Peter Sagan and German Marcel Kittel, second and third respectively.

Nairo Quintana (Movistar) lost almost a minute to his chief rivals, while Vincenzo Nibali, Romain Bardet and Ilnur Zakarin also losing decent chunks of time.

Indeed, you only had to look at the scheduled start times to see just who among the favourites was in need of gaining back some time. It also put American teammate Tejay van Garderen in second place at the same time.
