  1. A demain

    Right, was that enough drama for you in the first day of the Pyrenees?

    Steve Cummings continues the British success at this year's Tour - that's four out of seven stages won by Brits, including Mark Cavendish's three stage wins. 

    Then we have an inflatable taking out some riders, including Britain's Adam Yates, who is apparently off for stitches in his face.

    Not sure if tomorrow can match it, but we'll try. Don't forget to look out for the BBC Radio 5 live podcast later. Should make for entertaining listening. 

    See you tomorrow!

  4. 'I went by feeling'

    Race leader Greg van Arvamaet, who remains in the yellow jersey, on ITV 4: "It was not the plan to attack, I just went by feeling. I saw a point to go by myself and then make a move to keep my advantage before the climb." 

    Asked if he can remain in yellow tomorrow, he said: "Tomorrow is above my profile. I can survive one climb, but when the guys from the general classification go for it, it's done." 

  5. Froome home safely

    After his brave breakaway, Greg van Arvamaet remains in the yellow jersey and his lead has grown to six minutes 36 seconds over Julian Alaphillipe. Team Sky's Chris Froome remains fifth, six minutes 42 seconds. 

    But there is some confusion over the ruling concerning the inflatable collapsing. Adam Yates should be further up the general classification as he had an advantage over his rivals in the peloton. 

    We will keep you posted in our report, as we get news in. 

  6. Drama for Yates

    More now on that inflatable crash one kilometre from the end. It appears that Britain's Adam Yates came off his bike in the first instance, but he will not lose time on his rival as organisers say they will use the 3km rule, which means they will take his advantage at that point. 

    If you didn't see it, Yates was hit by the inflatable which marks the one kilometre mark. It fell on him, causing a nasty cut on his face. 

  7. I'd pick me for the Rio Olympics

    Steve Cummings on ITV4: "Success breeds success and Cav's a winner. There is a great atmosphere in the team. We want to win and the other day, I thought Serge Pauwels was going to win and take yellow, but any person is capable of winning a stage and that's our objective. We've done well so far and it's the only first week." 

    Asked whether he should be included in Britain's cycling team for the Rio Olympics, he adds: "I don't know, if I was coach I would but I'm not a selector, they have experts there so let them get on with it." 

  8. 'Ecstatic'

    Steve Cummings on ITV4: "I feel pretty exhausted, but I'm obviously ecstatic. The team has been fantastic, it's great to be with Mark Cavendish he's such a legend and today was a brilliant day. It was hot in the final, I was cooking up a bit, but I gave it everything to the top of Col d'Aspin, knowing the race has finished by the time I got there." 

  9. Steve Cummings wins stage seven

    Steve Cummings is in tears at the finish as he is greeted by his team. A victory of one minute and five seconds.

    That won't make any difference for the times of those within the peloton. They are cruising over the finish line. 

  15. Mon dieu

    So yellow jersey wearer Greg van Arvamaet is through to the finish line now but the inflatable marking the 1km to go point has collapsed on top of the chasing peloton!

    Steve Cummings is going to win. He's cruising now. He can relax.

    2km to go

    Safely down the bottom of the mountain, Steve Cummings looks like he has negotiated the danger very, very well. He's pushing for the line now.

    Don't forget he is a team-mate of Mark Cavendish. What a week for Team Dimension Data.
