Stage 9Gérardmer / Mulhouse

Start 13h20 (Local time)
  • A day of glory for Tony & Tony

    For the first time, Tony Martin has won a different stage than a time trial at the Tour de France but it looked like a time trial as he used the mid mountains stage in the Vosges to ride away with Alessandro De Marchi for 90 kilometres and solo for 59 kilometres! It was an enormous exploit by the German world champion for time trial but not the only amazing achievement of this eventful day as Frenchman Tony Gallopin took over from Vincenzo Nibali in the overall lead.

Tourist attractions

Gérardmer

In terms of cycling, Gerardmer is deeply linked to the Tour de l'Avenir that has stopped there five times. It was on that Vosges stage in 2009 that Romain Sicard had taken command of the race, distancing the likes of Tejay Van Garderen, Rafael Vals Ferri and Sergio Henao. A few years before, in 2001, the future Green Jersey of the Tour, Baden Cooke, had captured one of his first successes.

Mulhouse

The biggest automobile museum in the world, the Cité de l'Automobile, is set in Mulhouse. And the same goes for the train museum, Cité du Train that offers one of the most impressive railway collections. But the city also has quite a few great cycling stories to tell. Indeed, at the end of the first stage of the 1926 Tour, winner Jules Buysse captured the Yellow Jersey, eventually won in Paris by… Lucien Buysse. There is actually only one other example of brothers, also Belgian, to have carried the Yellow Jersey in the same edition of the Tour: Romain and Sylvère Maes, in 1939.
