Tour de France 2017: Geraint Thomas out after crash on stage nine

Froome keeps lead but loses trusted lieutenant Tour de France 2017: Geraint Thomas out after crash on stage nine

Overall, Froome leads Aru by 18 seconds and Bardet by 51.

However, Porte's BMC sporting director Fabio Baldato insisted the team had come prepared, particularly for the Mont du Chat climb and descent.

However, organisers said he was conscious and speaking but was being taken to hospital.

Quintana and Spanish veteran Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) had both been dropped by the favourites on the seventh and final climb of the day following a series of attacks from Froome and Porte on the Mont du Chat - making its first appearance on the race since 1974.

Tour de France doctor Florence said Porte had spoken after the fall but that the extent of his injuries would not be known until after X-rays.

With just over 30 kilometres remaining, Chris Froome had a mechanical error and had to change bikes.

During stage eight to Station des Rousses on Saturday, Thomas and Froome went into a corner too fast on a descent, with Thomas hitting a hay bale and taking the scab off a wound sustained in one of the earlier crashes.

I got more attention when I was the challenger than when I was the champion", she told UFC.com "I still have to keep proving myself, I have to keep winning and put on a show.

In the confusion that followed, Bardet used his local knowledge of the roads to ride clear and catch his compatriot as the road levelled out in the run into Chambery.

Porte missed a left-hand bend, cartwheeled across the road and bowled over another rider, Dan Martin, before slamming into a grassy bank.

Thomas had crashed on another descent much earlier in the stage and quit the Tour with a fractured collarbone.

Fuglsang, the recent victor of the Criterium du Dauphine, led out the final sprint before Uran - no longer hampered by that gearing issue - powered past. Other riders out include LottoNL-Jumbo's Robert Gesink.

Monday is a rest day and the fight for the overall title is set to resume next Thursday with the first big Pyrenean stage.

Although the group went with Aru, they neutralised the Astana rider, and allowed Froome to get back into the group.
