SPOILER – 153KM into Stage 9 – Riders Dropped

July 13, 2008

At 153KM, the first of two category 1 climbs begins. The mountain – the col de Peyresourde – has been part of the Tour de France 59 times before.

The climb has an average gradient of 7.1% and goes for 13KM.

During today’s ascent of the Peyresourde, some notables have been dropped including Eisel, Mark Cavendish and Robbie Mc Ewen.

Which is a bummer because I left Eisel in for my fantasy squad today. Blast!

More shortly.
