Stage 2: Tour de Crash

Stage 2 of the 2007 Tour de France from Dunkirk to Ghent was marked by a spectacular pileup in the final stretch. The big crash knocked down nearly two dozen riders and created a blockade that held most of the peloton back as Belgian Gert Steegmans of Quick Step-Innergetic pulled ahead to win the stage in his home country.

Although CSC Fabian Cancellara fell in the crash, he retains the yellow jersey ahead of Andreas Kloden (Astana), David Millar (Saunier Duval - Prodir) and Discovery Team's George Hincapie. Cancellara cross the finish line holding his arm in obvious pain.

The top finishers of Stage 2 are:
1. Gert Steegmans / Quick Step-Innergetic / Belgium
2. Tom Boonen / Quick Step-Innergetic / Belgium
3. Filippo Pozzato / Liquigas / Italy
4. Robert Hunter / Barloworld / South Africa
5. Romain Feillu / Agritubel / France
6. Robbie McEwen / Predictor-Lotto / Australia
7. Erik Zabel / Team Milram / Germany
8. Heinrich Haussler / Gerolsteiner / Germany
9. Oscar Freire / Rabobank / Spain
