Stage 9 of the Tour de France has wrapped up. Jonas Vingegaard picked up the Stage 8 win, but Michael Woods won Sunday’s stage. Pierre Latour and Matej Mohoric followed him to round out the stage’s podium. After a 182.5 km mountain stage with several climbs, the peloton earned its first rest day on Monday and will return for Stage 10 on Tuesday, July 11 for a 167.5 km medium-mountain stage.
It was a dominant ride for Matteo Jorgenson, who had a full-minute lead ahead of the next riders at one point. The final climb saw him ease off as the gas, whether strategy or just running out of energy. With only 1 km left in the race, he was passed by three riders and missed the podium despite leading for so much of it. The peloton had a rough day, as they were 16 minutes behind the leader before Jorgenson slowed up on the final climb. This was Woods’ first career Tour de France Stage win.
Below are the top finishers from Stage 9.
