2011 Tour de France photos

Stage 9: July 10, 2011

Back to 2011 Tour de France

Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Stage 9, Issoire - Saint Flour, 208 km

Sunflowers

Here's our obligatory yearly picture of riders going by a sunflower field. Note the spectator's umbrellas.

Stage 9 finish

Luis Leon Sanchez gets the reward of a day's hard work. Thomas Voeckler can be seen a few seconds back.

Thomas Voeckler

Voeckler rode himself into yellow. He got into a fuga di bidone in 2004 that put him in yellow for 11 days.

Stage 9 field sprint

Philippe Gilbert wins the field sprint and keeps the green jersey.

Gilbert and Evans

Cadel Evans is right there with Gilbert. So far Evans has ridden a faultless race and is the most highly placed contender.

Thor Hushovd

This was Thor Hushovd's last day in yellow.
