Stage Nine: Just In Time…

Stage 9

Move from flats to climbs, and the game changes.  No surprise it is, therefore, that le maillot jaune changed shoulders today after its seven-day hold.  So comes and goes stage 9, now with France’s Tony Gallopin wearing yellow just in time for Bastille Day!

Just In Time…

Dan Martin’s big stage win!

A two-man fight to the finish closed the day.  After five major climbs, stage 9 is history with yet another first-for-this-Tour winner, just in time for some much-deserved “rest” tomorrow.

Congratulations to American Team Garmin-Sharp and its winning Irishman!
