  1. Time for a breather

    OK, that's just about it from me today.

    I think everybody deserves a rest on Monday after what was a brutal stage nine across seven climbs, three of them hors categories.

    I wondered for a while whether we were going to get the levels of drama that many had predicted but the stage delivered in the end.

    The 5 live team out in France, OJ Borg, Simon Brotherton and Rob Hayles, will be on the 5 live Facebook page a little later delivering their verdict on the stage. That will also be available as a BeSpoke podcast.

    Tuck in - and see you on Tuesday.

  2. Post update

    Geraint Thomas and Richie Porte weren't the only people to abandon today....

    The glamorous life of a cyclist....

  3. A good day for Froome

    We're hearing that BMC are reporting that Richie Porte is going to be OK, which is obviously huge news. His crash looked awful.

    We've also lost Geraint Thomas today and had something approaching the shake-up at the top of the yellow jersey standings that Chris Froome predicted.

    Obviously Thomas and Porte have gone, Alberto Contador is five minutes off the pace after a poor day and Nairo Quintana is two minutes behind the leader.

  4. Post update

    Did I mention that tomorrow is a rest day? If ever a day off had been fully earned by a group of professional sportsmen....

  5. Froome stays in yellow

    General classification after stage nine:

    1. Chris Froome (GB/Team Sky) 38hrs 26mins 28secs

    2. Fabio Aru (Italy / Astana) +18secs

    3. Romain Bardet (France / AG2R) +51secs

    4. Rigoberto Uran (Colombia / Cannondale) +55secs

    5. Jakob Fuglsang (Denmark / Astana) +1min 37secs

    6. Daniel Martin (Ireland / Quick-Step) +1min 44secs

    7. Simon Yates (Britain / Orica) +2min 02secs

    8. Nairo Quintana (Colombia / Movistar) +2min 13secs

    9. Mikel Landa (Spain / Team Sky) +3min 06secs

    10. George Bennett (New Zealand / LottoNL) +3min 53secs

  6. Polka dot jersey

    A silver lining for France's Warren Barguil, who missed out on a stage winner by an incredibly small margin, as he takes the polka dot jersey as the new leader of the King of the Mountains competition.

    Too much for Mark Cavendish today....

  8. Broken collarbone for G

    Just had a message from 5 live producer Gemma Sterba, who tells me that Sky have confirmed Geraint Thomas has a broken collarbone.

    A real shame for Thomas, who of course wore yellow at the start of the race.

  9. Post update

    Chris Froome warming down. Cannot see Fabio Aru though.........

  10. Chapeau indeed...

    First win since 2015 - Rigoberto Uran looks ecstatic as he stands on the podium.

    Chris holdstock: wow Uran! Last few km's with a broken derailleur. Chapeau that man!

    stephengenockey: gutted for Dan Martin. Would have been sitting nicely in top 3 only for getting caught by Porte.

    Dean Moffatt: glad I'm off work today, that's a proper cycle race right there! Need tomorrow off to recover!

  13. 'It was so slippery out there'

    Dan Martin: "Richie lost it on one corner - it was so slippery, I guess the organisers got what they wanted. It was so slippery under the trees.

    "I was very, very lucky to get away as lightly as I did."

    Dan Martin
  14. Froome stays in yellow

    Froome will get four bonus seconds for finishing third.

    Fabio Aru is now second and Romain Bardet third.

    After Aru tried to make a move on him when Froome had a mechanical earlier I imagine bantz will be at a premium.
