In the second stage, the first major climb, the Ballon d’Alsace, made its debut. Four riders were the fasted climbers: Trousselier, René Pottier, Cornet and Aucouturier. Of those four, Trousselier and Aucouturier were the first to be dropped, and Cornet had to drop in the final kilometers. The top was therefore reached first by René Pottier, without dismounting, at an average speed of 20 km/h. Cornet, who reached the top second, had to wait 20 minutes for his bicycle with higher gear, because his support car had broken down. Later Aucouturier caught Pottier, and dropped him, and won the stage. Pottier became second in the stage and led the classification. Seven cyclists did not reach the finish in time because they were out of spare tyres due to the many flats they had during this stage and therefore were again allowed to start the next stage. These men reached the finish by train by the way.
