Digital News Report – After having yesterday off, the bicycle racers continued their 2,500 mile journey with Sandy Casar from France winning Stage 9 of the Tour de France 2010 race. This was another challenging day with the race going through the Alps mountain range.
Stage nine covered 127 miles and was a downward slope to the finish line. On Stage 10, the cyclists have to journey 111 miles in the last part of the Alps mountain range with a second-category climb at Col du Noyer which is the tallest of the three climbs in this race.
The cyclists have one more day of mountains and then they will get a break from the mountains for three days, then they are back into the mountains again.
