  1. BBC Sport Tour de France stage-by-stage guide, Mitchelton-Scott’s Adam Yates is backing Italy’s Elia Viviani to take the victory on stage 10.

    Yates says: “It’s Monday, isn’t today a rest day!? No! I think the playbook for today will depend on what has happened so far. There will be some motivated for the breakaway, no question, but will there be sprint teams still looking for a win?

    “It’s a lot nicer to get to the first rest day with some success, and if you don’t have a GC rider, that comes in the form of a stage win. So, for me, the break has little chance.”

    Rider to watch:“Elia Viviani – regardless of whether the Italian has broken his Tour duck already, he will be super-motivated for this stage.”

  • Instagram pagethe 33-year-old Italian said: “Here I am. Bruised but smiling.I want to thank the many people who showed me their affection with messages and calls for encouragement.

    “As you can see my condition is good, I have some serious ailments but nothing that time cannot heal and repair. I will take this injury as a break.I will take advantage of this forced stop to do a reset, set a new zero point, a new starting point in my career as in my life.

    “I have so many things still in the drawer.The first comes already in 2020, in August, and I’ll be ready!

    “When life offers you lemons, make a lemonade.”

    “This whole team works so hard behind the scenes to make days like yesterday happen. Thank you Mitchelton-Scott.”

    On stage nine Daryl Impey became the the first South African to win an individual stage at the Tour since Robert Hunter’s triumph in Montpellier in 2007.

    The Mitchelton-Scott rider was involved in a 15-man from pretty much the off on Sunday before powering past Tiesj Benoot in a sprint finish to the line.

    “I have been in quite a few breakaways and to finally nail it is a dream come true,” Impey told ITV 4. “All the stars lined up.

    “I kind of found a lucky move and didn’t have to do too much to get in there. I played it smart at the end and knew I had to reach Tiesj and was glad I got there.

    “The last time a South African won a stage was in 2007 so it’s been a long time between drinks but it’s a magic memory.”

  • And away we go

    Here we go. The roll out is under way.

  • Post update

    After the last two stages, could it be another day for the breakaway? Or will today which ends with relatively untaxing run into Albi be a day for the sprinters?

    With this race you never know.
