2017 Tour de France

STAGE 9: Nantua to Chambéry

Sunday, July 9, 5:55 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. ET

The 2017 Tour de France isn’t the most mountainous in history. Still, ASO feels stage 9 should be regarded as the summit of the 104th edition. When Tour director Christian Prudhomme and technical director Thierry Gouvenou talk about the route, which links the Jura with Savoie, their eyes start to shine. The pair have laid out an unusually difficult test: In the history of the Tour, it has never had to tackle such steep ascents one after the other.

Three beyond-category passes are on the menu, beginning with a new climb, the Col de la Biche (10.5 kilometers at an average of 9 percent). “It’s pretty at the top, wide open,” Gouvenou says. “But once you reach the summit, you stay up on the plateau and it isn’t possible to recover. It has a succession of spaced-out hairpins, initially in the forest and then running through mountain pasture.”

After that comes the ascent of the Grand Colombier, which is tackled from a new angle, “la Directissime”, which includes ramps of up to 22 percent. “This really is an unusually difficult test. The first four kilometers are terrible, averaging 13 percent with sections at 19 percent.” After this very difficult beginning, the riders will be able to get their breath back on an easier section before encountering two difficult kilometers to reach the summit.

To finish the day, there’s the difficult ascent of Mont du Chat (averaging 10.3 percent), followed by a very technical descent into Chambéry.

The Tour has tackled this last climb just once before, in 1974. Raymond Poulidor attacked there and gained a minute on Eddy Merckx. “It’s a fearsome pass, extending to 8.7 kilometers at 10.3 percent,” Gouvenou notes. “It’s very hard and is followed by a very technical and fast descent. In terms of altitude gained, this will be the biggest stage of the Tour, with 4,600 meters of vertical ascent. It will be as brutal as, for example, the linking of the Croix de Fer and Galibier passes. We’ve never featured as many steep grades as this. It’s a trip into the unknown. We simply don’t know where it’s going to lead us, although it may turn out to be like stages we see at the Vuelta.”

 

Urán wins crash-filled Tour stage, Froome keeps yellow

CHAMBÉRY, France (AFP) — Colombian Rigoberto Urán won a drama-filled ninth stage of the Tour de France on Sunday as Australian Richie Porte and Briton Geraint Thomas crashed out.

Champion Chris Froome retained the yellow jersey after finishing the stage third, behind Frenchman Warren Barguil who missed out on victory in a photo-finish.

Briton Froome’s four bonus seconds on the line helped him increase his lead to 18 seconds over Italian Fabio Aru, who moved up a place to second with Thomas having quit the race.

Romain Bardet is now third at 51 seconds with Urán, who took the winner’s 10-second bonus, fourth at 55 seconds.

But other contenders including twice former runner-up Nairo Quintana of Colombia lost more than a minute, as did Dan Martin, who courageously battle on despite being taken down by Porte’s spectacular crash, and even coming off his bike a second time on that same perilous descent.

Porte’s crash was the most dramatic as he clipped the grass verge on the inside of a bend on the lightning quick descent down the fearsome Mont du Chat less than 25km from the finish.

He came off his bike and skidded across the tarmac into Martin, clattering both into the rock face on the other side of the road.

“Devastating images of @richie_porte coming from the road after a nasty crash. Richie will be taken to hospital for examination,” said Porte’s BMC team on Twitter.

He lay motionless on the road for some time being attended to by medics before being taken to hospital, although organisers said he was conscious and speaking.

Thomas had crashed on another descent, made treacherous by rain, earlier in the day, suffering a suspected broken collarbone.

It meant it was a bitter-sweet day for Froome who, despite increasing his lead and seeing several top rivals lose time, lost his chief Team Sky lieutenant Thomas and good friend Porte.

Twice former winner Alberto Contador was one of the big losers on the day  from the 181.5km stage from Nantua to Chambéry.

The Spanish veteran cracked on the final of seven categorised climbs and lost several minutes by the finish.

Martin, though, produced a remarkable ride despite his two crashes to limit his losses.

“I managed to catch the group in front of me after I crashed the second time — I was flying down the mountain,” he said with a smile.

“After I caught Nairo (Quintana) at the bottom, everyone was committed and it was just a case of getting to the finish.

“Job done!”

Like Quintana he came home 1min 15sec behind Urán and now sits sixth at 1:44, with Quintana remaining eighth but now out to 2:13 behind Froome.
