Uran wins crash-filled stage, Froome keeps yellow

Cannondale rider Uran came up with one final burst at the end of a gruelling 181.5 kilometres route from Nantua, which included three Hors Category climbs, and is now fourth in the general classification standings - with 55 seconds to make up on Froome.

Team Sky's Geraint Thomas has been forced to abandon the Tour de France after crashing during a high-speed descent during stage nine on Sunday.

It was a fourth crash of the race for Thomas, who spent four days in the yellow jersey after winning the opening time trial in Düsseldorf last weekend. "Richie will be taken to hospital for examination", BMC Racing Team wrote on Twitter.

In what has been its evergreen strategy, Pakistan yet again accused India of violating ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC). The firing allegedly resulted in killing two civilians, including a woman.

"He was conscious, it's reassuring, he is being transferred to the hospital", Pommery said. I've just seen the images of Richie Porte's crash and that leaves you with a frightful feeling. Thomas had crashed on another descent, made treacherous by rain, earlier in the day, suffering a suspected broken collarbone. "I managed to catch the group in front of me after I crashed the second time - I was flying down the mountain", he said with a smile.

One of the pre-race favourites, Porte came off his bike on the descent of Mont du Chat and was immediately treated on the side of the road before being carried into an ambulance on a stretcher.

Thomas started the day 12 seconds adrift of Team Sky team-mate Froome in second spot in the GC standings, but his race was ended when he damaged his shoulder in a fall.

The two-times Tour victor Alberto Contador also hit the deck as he fell on the ascent of the Grand Colombier, but the Spaniard was quickly back on his way with a push from spectators.

Whether the timing was purely coincidental or whether Aru launched his attack in response to Froome being in trouble is unclear, but while other riders followed the Italian's move, the refused to help him, effectively neutralising the race until the yellow jersey rejoined them.
