Tour de France stage 9 Live – Puncheur potential and GC panic on the gravel

UAE Team Emirates lead the peloton on the gravel at the Tour de France 2024.


Van Aert (TVL) is giving his all for Vingegaard now with Jorgenson and Laporte ready and waiting too. 

Vingegaard (TVL), Pogačar (UAD), Evenepoel (SOQ) and Roglič (RBH) all at the front of the peloton this time.

80km to go

This time, the peloton is led onto the climb by Visma-Lease a Bike with UAE Team Emirates following in the wheels. De Lie (LTD) immediately dropped. 

Onto the next climb which is also gravelled. The Côte de Chacenay. Max gradient of 9% on the gravel. 

De Lie (LTD) makes it back in the peloton along with Bardet (DFP) but he is unlikely to be involved in the finale. 

The breakaway have now upped their gap to over a minute as they continue to work well together. They have given their all today. Israel-Premier Tech tell Gee to take it easy in the break. 

Arnaud De Lie (LTD) starting to really struggle to hold onto the peloton, maybe suffering from his earlier efforts up the road. Mistakes definitely made. 


Alexey Lutsenko (AST) takes the one point at the top of the climb. 

The race is really on in the peloton now. 

Lazkano (MOV) has obviously had some issues as he has been dropped from the break and now is at the back of the peloton. 

Nils Politt (UAD) now takes over on the front of the bunch on the gravel and, finally, Red Bull-Bora-Hansgrohe have their man, Primož Roglič, well placed. 

Israel-Premier Tech, Ineos Grenadiers and Red Bull-Bora-Hansgrohe join UAE Team Emirates on the front of the peloton as Gee (IPT) leads the break onto one of the hardest sectors, the three star Côte de Val Frion.

Bike change

UAE Team Emirates are really pushing the tempo now with Soler and Wellens giving their all for Pogačar.
