Vincenzo Nibali won Stage 2 of the Tour de France after a well-choreographed attack and took the overall lead Sunday.

The Astana team leader from Italy escaped a 21-man breakaway bunch with about a mile left in the 125-mile hilly leg from York to Sheffield in England.

Marcel Kittel, a strong sprinter who struggles on climbs, trailed nearly 20 minutes back and lost the yellow jersey he earned by winning Stage 1.

Overall, Nibali leads 20 riders by two seconds, including defending champion Chris Froome, Alberto Contador and Americans Andrew Talansky and Tejay van Garderen.

"For me, it was about staying out of trouble ... and avoiding any major issues," Froome said. "I'm tired, but I hope everyone's tired after a day like today."

Monday's third stage is 96 miles from Cambridge to London.

Mark Cavendish withdrew after separating his shoulder Saturday.
