Stage 9 - Review

It was a very eventful day, spent in cold weather. Two news shook stage 9 from the start: the withdrawals of Mathieu Van Der Poel and Primoz Roglic from the Tour de France. Initially the breakaway was made up of more than 40 riders, but the protagonists were the Colombians Sergio Higuita (EF Education - Nippo) and Nairo Quintana (Arkea Samsic). The latter became the new leader of the mountains after taking advantage of his stay in the breakaway. For a while he was in the lead with Higuita, but the legs of both succumbed to the effort and it was Ben O'Connor (AG2R Citroën), who took the lead in the stage with almost 15 kilometers to go and soloed to the finish line to celebrate his team for the first time in the current competition. Speaking of the overall competition, Tadej Pogacar unleashed his fury again after a failed attack by Richard Carapaz and took 30 seconds off the rest of the favorites.
