First Australian win at the Tour de France this year with Michael Matthews outsprinting Peter Sagan in Revel for a revenge of the last world championship. It was a royal breakaway with former yellow jersey holder Greg Van Avermaet and 2014 Tour de France champion Vincenzo Nibali. Chris Froome retained the lead in the overall ranking.read more
"It was a pretty strange start. Obviously for us, there was a lot of work to do. We were happy with the breakaways that were going but at some stage, Valverde attacked so we had to neutralize that. We were not able to see much in the downhill of Envalira due to the fog. It was a bit like at the Giro a few years ago when Quintana slipped up the front so I was keeping an eye on him to make sure he wouldn't do the same again. Then it was a good day to keep off. I could ride with not much to...read more
“It's unbelievable. I was just sinking in. I was close to giving in at this race after I had two bad crashes two and one years ago. This time around, I've crashed three times already. I thought maybe this race is not for me but my wife came during the rest day. We had a good talk. She kept me motivated and today my dream comes true. It was never the plan to go for a breakaway today. We wanted a bunch sprint finish but we're such a strong group of guys. Durbridge and Impey gave me...read more
Samuel Dumoulin (Ag2R, 5th in the stage): "It's not a disappointment when you look at the quality of the field and the riders with whom I was –– the worlds runner-up Matthews, the world champion Sagan, Boasson-Hagen, Van Avermaet and I was there with them. It was a very fast end to the stage, very hard with riders like Nibali and Rui Costa. I was there in the finale, I sensed Sagan split attempt. And then the guys were real strong. I gave it all I had but I couldn't do any better. I was...read more
“The first climb was pretty full gas as always. It's always difficult to start a stage uphill. But we have a great team. Four of guys were at the front of the race at Port d'Envalira. We couldn't get the success we wanted in the first week but now we have it with Michael Matthews. He's pretty quick. When he has an opportunity to win, he usually makes the best of it. He's won everywhere. He was won a lot of bike races. He just hadn't won at the Tour de France yet. Today we knew if we'd get...read more
“It's always possible to win but they let me close all the gaps. Matthews had the best position before the sprint while I had lost a lot of energy before the sprint. It didn't go very well at the end but it could have been worse as well.”read more
“I got a bit of a cold. We have to make a medical check tonight. In the climb to Port d'Envalira, I tried a few times. We marked each other quite a lot. The only time I didn't go with the move, it was the decisive one to get the points at the top but it was more important for me to mark Majka. Our next appointment is at the Mont Ventoux.”read more
The Tour de France leaves Andorra after the first rest day. The next major appointment for the GC contenders is on Thursday at the Mont Ventoux. A traditional tactic by great cycling champions consists of letting the yellow jersey go for a day or two to please the crowds and make a few friends in the peloton. The last one to do so was Vincenzo Nibali who made a gift to Tony Gallopin and his French fans two years ago. Chris Froome might be well inspired to do so as well, as Paris is still a...read more

|15:53||Direct Energie to help IAM Cycling|
Since IAM Cycling doesn't bring the deficit down, Direct Energie moves to the front of the peloton. They have Sylvain Chavanel in the leading group but possibly higher ambitions with Bryan Coquard in case of a return of the main pack.

|15:29||Revel, a regular stage finish...|
Sylvain Chavanel knows the finale through the côte de Saint-Ferréol very well because Revel has been a regular stage finish of the Tour de France in recent years with victories by Erik Dekker (2000), Paolo Savoldelli (2005) and Alexandre Vinokourov (2010). Today it's the tenth stage finish of the Tour de France at Revel in fifty years. Rudi Altig who died last month was the first winner in 1966. Eddy Merckx won a time trial in Revel in 1969…
|15:18||Sylvain Chavanel: "I know the finale very well"|
Breakaway rider Sylvain Chavanel (Direct Energie) spoke to letour.com this morning: “It's a stage suitable for puncheurs. I know the finale very well. The hill is short but it can be enough to make a difference.”
The deficit of the peloton led by IAM Cycling is 7 minutes with 85km to go, still under the rain.
|15:13||IAM Cycling at the head of the peloton|
It's now IAM Cycling to help Team Sky setting the pace of the peloton. They don't have anyone in the breakaway.

|15:02||Katusha gives up!|
Right after saying on TV that they'll try to bring the breakaway back, Katusha stops pulling! So it's Team Sky again at the head of the peloton, now seven minutes behind the 15 escapees.
|15:00||José Azevedo: "Alone, it'll be difficult to bring it back"|
Katusha's directeur sportif José Azevedo told Francetelevisions: "There's a group at the front and we want to bring it back, that's why we're riding at the head of the peloton. Alone, it's going to be difficult. Maybe with some help we'll make it but I'm not sure if someone wants to help us. We can never say that we're going to win but we have to try. After the rest day, our sprinter Alexander Kristoff feels good."

Team Sky doesn't want to chase the breakaway but Katusha does. The Russian outfit sets the pace of the peloton, three minutes behind the 15 escapees. There's a group with green jersey holder Mark Cavendish six minutes behind.
|14:22||Sagan and Dumoulin reined in|

|14:16||Peloton at one minute|

We know what he's capable of but he's even a little bit above the goals we had set. We'll draw up a report after the first time trial but he recovers very well. Rui Costa is doing well too. We agreed in November that his target would be a stage victory. He wasn't too far the day before yesterday [2nd at...

The border between Andorra and France has remained famous in the history of the race for Jacques Anquetil's failure in 1964 but the Frenchman made it across as he took a lot of risks in the downhill, helped by his team-mate Louis Rostollan.

|12:45||Mark Cavendish under threat|
Mark Cavendish holds the green jersey with 204 points. Peter Sagan has come much nearer during stage 9 as he won the intermediate sprint at Andorra-la-Vella. He's second with 197 points. Marcel Kittel is third with 182 points. Today's intermediate sprint is at Aigues-Vives, km 122.5. 50 points are up for grabs with 20 to the winner at the intermediate sprint and 30 on the finishing line in Revel.
|12:44||Chris Froome in the lead with a tight margin|
Chris Froome is in the yellow jersey but the time difference between the first ten riders in the overall ranking has never been so tight after the first rest day in the history of the Tour de France. Alejandro Valverde, 10th, is at 1.01. Adam Yates is second at 16 seconds, Dan Martin third at 19 seconds, Nairo Quintana fourth at 23 seconds… It's wide open! But the Tour de France returns to France without Alberto Contador who pulled out during stage 9.
|12:43||Langeveld and Vanmarcke off the back|
