Stage 9 - Tuesday, July 17: Val-d’Isère - Briançon, 159.5km

Colombian Juan Mauricio Soler(Barloworld) celebrates his first stage victory at the tender age of 24. Barloworld was a wildcard team that barely made it into the Tour de France, and their invite has paid huge dividends to the sponsors. Dane Michael Rasmussen defended his yellow jersey ahead of American Levi Leipheimer and the other contendors.
Alberto Contador and Yaroslave Popovich descend the Galibier in front of the chasing favorites.
